e260R 4GB quick formatted as FAT instead of FAT32, now will not connect to pc, screen goes blank

I stupidly quick formatted as FAT instead of FAT32 while not in recovery mode.  Is my player bricked?

The player starts up ok with the following message: “not enough free space for music db. please clear up to 6mb” then the message goes away.  When I connect to pc, the screen goes blank.

In recovery mode have tried to reformat as FAT32 with no success.  Reloading the firmware also does nothing.   

Any help is appreciated.
