DishTV S8100-ZA recording

I have recently ditched my Sky TV along with the My Sky box so I cannot record any more. To get around the recording I have purchased a Seagate 4Tb external USB hard drive to record to.When I try to format the drive from the PVR option, Media format, I get a message that Format cancelled.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrsstellaabudheir@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Stella.
