SAT receiver does not find the WD 1 terabyte external drive

I have a WD portable drive 1TB- I like to use for the SAT receiver from Technisat. I am formating it now since 4hours to FAT32 and it is at 40%. Is that normal? I use a FAT32formatter program. Does anybody has any expierience?
I am not ver familiar with this stuff…

Hi, if you are formatting the drive for FAT32 with a third party software there would be no way to know how long might take without the software name.
