set the hold switch to locked.   press and hold the rew << key and connect to USB.

 

THis forces MSC mode.  YOU can then try to recover the FAT, or FOrmat the device.

i have tried that still cant be recognized..

 

 

i did get it to be recognized 2x or 3x and tried reformatting it,using the sdformatter,hp formatter and windows formatter but it freezes and says device cannot be formatted... is there any other way to reset it,like a hard reset or something?

Same thing happened with me, except it was because I had like 600 songs on an SD card in it. I just reformatted it on the computer and it worked...but now on Napster, the lil device symbol is different, and when I add songs Napster crashes : /
