If the file system you chose was NTSF I *think* that over writes the firmware. The firmware is in a hidden partition a format to FAT32 doesn't touch. From what I remember formatting to NTSF writes to the entire disk and kills that hidden partition. Without a firmware to tell the hardware how to function there wouldn't be any way for the player to connect.

I'd sure like to be wrong about this so I'll keep looking to see if there's a way to get a NTFS system to connect. I'd encourage you to look into what Linux offers. There may be a way to connect and write a firmware image or restore from there. I haven't found a way to do that yet but it's all I can think might help.
