Initializing external HDD - 17-November-2008, 19:42

Hi there, hope someone can help me out

I'm a Dreambox newb, got my DM800 today, and am in process of setting up. I connected my Packard Bell 400mb external USB HDD, which had been connected to my PC for some time, and DM800 has recognised it and allowed me to initialise. First time I tried this, I got an error message after a few minutes, saying that it was unable to mount the HDD. I tried again, and it has been in 'initializing harddisk' mode, with gears turning, for well over an hour now. Is it usual to take this long for a 400gb drive? Also, about 20 min in, it just started showing a channel, which I can't change. I get the feeling that I should just reset and try again, but the longer it goes, the more I worry about messing up a genuine process and having to start again!

Thanks for any ideas guys.
