If it's copy protected well, that's a problem.

Use the actual device

I would think the end device provides the method of "preparation of use" before it actually uses any CF card as it sees it needs to be done. Make several CF cards beforehand in order to have them. Doing it this way will provide whatever format is needed is thus done correctly. Trying to do it in a more generic way may introduce some issue. I'm sure there is some "copy/clone" s/w available that could do what you want to do. Visit some free file websites and check what'st available and test before final use.
