I was uhh...trying to use it as an install USB device for my old imac (seemed like a great idea at the time!). I had reformatted it as OS X (journaled) and copied over a dmg...only it didn't work (of course) and now the player won't even start up (big surprise--I erased everything!!).
I tried the recovery mode thing (I think) but all that happens is the player's blue ring lights up, and the screen stays black. My guess is the mac reformatted *everything* on the player so I don't know if I even have the 16Mb partition intact...let alone system/firmware files.
I've read through many different forum posts here but none of them seem to describe the same problem. I'm reasonably tech-savvy, but I have to admit that I don't know even where to start on this.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
