Hello, my name is Rusty. It definitely sounds like you need to format your storage. Press Edit, then press the [SYSTEM] key several times to make the display read “DiskUtil”.

Press the [ > ] key, and then press the [SYSTEM] key several times to make the display read “Initial (or Format, for a complete format)”. Press the [ > ] key, and then rotate the [VALUE] dial to select the drive number (SCSI ID A–G) that you wish to initialize or format. When you select a drive number, the drive type “HD” (hard disk) or “RM” (removable disk) will appear beside the drive number.

Press and hold the [ > ] key for approximately one second. While the operation is being
executed, the display will indicate “Working”.

When the operation is finished, the display will indicate “Completed”. Press the [ > ] key to restore the previous display.

Test the recorder, and tell me the results.

how long does it take before saying completed?

Expert:  Rusty replied 3 years ago.
It can take an hour or more, depending on the size of the drive. Be patient, and don't disturb it until it's done, or you could have to start over, or worse, damage the drive.
