so after a couple hours i might have bad unit?
It seems like that might be the case. Wait for someone else to chime in about this who has done a reformat before though (I have not). A couple hours to me sounds like your drive has all sorts of bad sectors on it.

The HR-20 reformat is a "quick" format. It just deletes the entries from the directory not the files themselves. It should be pretty quick. It has to re-acquire from the satelite so that may be what is really the problem...

Call your buddies at tech support.

Sorry,

Craig
