That's Recovery Mode. You can re-install the firmware while connected this way that may help and/or format the player (which will clear the memory) by creating a new blank file and naming it "sansa.fmt" (w/o quotes).

If I right click on the drive and try to format, it will say windows was unable to complete the format. Actually it just registered as formatted after I tried to put that file there. Now I have a sansa.fmt file on the disk but the drive shows as 16mb still

Dont ever attempt to do this in Recovery Mode!!!
You WILL brick your player!!!
Only format the way I described. If you have created a new file and named it sansa.fmt, click on "Safely Remove hardware" in your system tray, and then un-plug the player and move the HOLD switch off.. it will then format itself.
This post may be of help to you.

Create the file how? If I want to put a file on the drive it wants to format it 1st. No matter what , it recognizes it as a 16 mb drive only. If I eject and unplug it goes into the endless startup loop.
