Yes, you need to format the target disk before you have ADT write an image to it.

Steps:
1. Boot your ADT disk.
2. Quit ADT. (Remove the ADT boot disk.)
3. Insert your target disk.
4. type INIT HELLO
5. When done, swap the ADT disk back in the drive and BRUN ADT.
6. Take your ADT disk back out and insert your blank disk.

Now try your transfer!

Tell me more about your Apple

Tell me more about your Apple II computer, and the serial connection to the "modern" computer. It sounds like there isn't a good connection between them...
