Does your computer recognize the device? while the player is connected, open your my computer folder and right click on the device if it appears. then click on format. After format is done, disconnect device and it should reboot. then you may have to reload the firmware from the creative website.

slide the back off, take out the battery, put it back in while holding the power switch on. THis brings up the Recovery Menu, from where you have various options, formatting being but one.
