Hi all just wondering if anyone can help me I have a freeveiw box that can record tv that has a 320g sata hard drive inside my girlfreind has managed to nearly fill this with mostly soups and so we need to clear it the problem is there is some stuff we do want to keep so I removed the harddrive and attached it to my pc (because the box itself is incredibly slow at deleting) and the drive does not show up on the my comp screen but its on the bios and in the hardware list. Thanks in advance

Windows 7 will let you format the drive once you connect it, but you will lose the data that stored on it, and your digital recorder is likely to not recognize it afterwards.

right click on Computer, go to manage-->disk management, it should show up there. You can delete the existing partitions on it and re-partition and format to ntfs

There's your problem right there, It's full of soups! you can't store foodstuffs on a hard drive, a kitchen cupboard is probably the answer.

I think she would rather have a hard drive than a floppy disk.
