unable to format DVR Xpander with SA8300HD

I need help. My 8300HD asks me if i want to format the external drive i have (its a Apricorn DVR Xpander 500 GB)
I then say yes by pressing the C button. I wait almost an hour to make sure the formatting is complete then turn off my 8300 and unplug it. Wait 1 minute more then re-plug my 8300 only to see the same message that asks me if i would like to format the drive... ive tried 5 times already but it doesnt seem to format it. What am i doing wrong? Can my Xpander be defective? Can i try to reformat on my computer? (ive tried but am unable to see this drive on my PC)
