Exclamation did I just ruin my Zen V??

I've had my Zen V for about 5 months and it has been great -- no glitches. Tonight I had it plugged in to recharge and sync up. Normally when I disconnect, I select "Safely Remove Hardware" (I'm running Windows XP). Tonight I forgot and just unplugged it from the USB cord. When I tried to turn it on, nothing happened. I plugged it back into the USB, and the play and return buttons didn't light up blue like they normally do. I tried pushing the reset button. I tried doing the recovery thing by holding down play while powering on. Nothing. I'm sure it was done syncing b/c it had finished syncing quite a bit before I disconnected. The instruction manual didn't say that horrible things would happen by simply disconnecting...

I'm not sure what to do. I find it hard to believe the hardware is faulty since I've been happily using it for some time, but I can't tell if I did something to it, and I can't even upgrade the firmware b/c my computer acts like it isn't there now.

ARGH -- i'm addicted to my podcasts and will go through withdrawls! Any help/advice will be much appreciated -- thank you.
