Right Click on your new drive in the Computer
Choose a File System (NTFS is ideal most cases) and give the new volume a name if you choose. You might like to call it something like "Portable Drive," or "Removeable Drive." If not, just take the defaults and click "OK."
You will get one last warning that you are about to format your drive and erase all data. Click OK to proceed. When you see the process has reached 100%, you are done and you're new external hard drive is ready to use!

Sounds like a 2 part question.
Part 1, how do you use the drive on the computer to watch recorded shows from you DVR, simple install EX for windows which will allow your computer to access Linux formatted drives.
Part 2, how do you retrieve the files that were on it before, that depends how many new files you've put on it since. When the DVR formatted the drive it didn't erase the old files and they could easily be found again with a very inexpensive program. Each show you've recorded since will have overwritten some of the files. I will give you a link below for a review I wrote of such a program. Don't buy it right away, download the trial and scan the Toshiba, the program will show you a list of files it can recover then if you think it's worthwhile for the files it shows, only then pay for the program and recover the files.
Link for EX?
