Time Machine - Looking for Backup Disk (endless loop)

So I've had a rather bizarre issue as of late. I've been using a 1TB partition on my LaCie 2Big as my Time Machine backup. However, Time Machine started saying "Looking for Backup Disk...". I left the computer on over night to see if the issue would resolve itself, but unfortunately, it was still "Looking for Backup Disk". So, I decided to format the partition, and reset my Time Machine, as it was getting rather full. After doing all of this, and picking the new partition, it's STILL giving me the same "Looking for Backup Disk".

I'm at a loss of what to do right now. Does anyone have any suggestions?
