Hi Maurice,

Thank you for using Just Answer my name is ***** ***** I will help with your question.

Unfortunately I think the hard drive in your box might be failing and that is why you cannot reformat it.

Have you tried resetting the box?

I would try and reset the box first if that does not help, I would then suggest trying to format the drive again if it still does not work, I can talk upgrading the firmware on the box to see if that will solve your problems, to upgrade the firmware you will need a usb flash drive.

I am sorry but you would lose all your recordings, and I do feel it is the hard drive that is failing.

If you need any advise on a new box please feel free to ask.
