The gnome-disk-utility should be installed by default, which gives you an simple interface for formating your partitions, external- and flashdrives.

Otherwise install it with

sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility

Afterwards you should find it as "disk management" (hopefully, translation guessed, I am on a german system) in your dash or menu.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!
