I was using a 500mb conner hard disk but now 4.5gb seagate hard disk but can't format it

you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating systemor if you are trying to format a usb drive

insert your pen drive

click start click on my computer you should see your pen drive

right click then select format

another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format

hope this helps

Can i format device without deleting content on hard disk

You cannot format any disk without losing everything. When you format a drive you are essintally bringing it back to the state of it's first use. If you can, transfer the data to another storage device until after the format.
