Please help! Also, suggest any third-party apps that can allow me to format my external HDD.

[Like in the screenshot, this is the maximum I'm able to format -- it never goes past this level]

P.S. It is a brand new HDD; I rarely use it. Don't know why it is behaving this way. It's a Seagate product.

You can download SeaTools from the Seagate website and run some test on the hard drive. It may just be a bad egg.
