WD PVR expander seems stuck formatting

Hi there,

 

I just connected a 1 TB Western Digital PVR Expander to my new Gateway. Gateway recognized the device and gave me the onscreen prompt to format it. Now, more than four hours later, I'm still getting the message, "An external hard drive is formatting..." etc.

 

Any tips? I know it says not to disconnect the hard drive until formatting is complete, but that's clearly never gonna happen. Thanks!
