    How exactly do I do a hard reset?

    I tried wiping it clean and reformatting it to FAT32 - that didn't work - I got it wiped clean and reformatted, but it's still in Chinese.

    I tried using Sansa's utility to download and overwrite the firmware, but I have the latest with 4.x.x and can't get the utility to overwrite it since I apparently have the most up-to-date firmware already. I'm stuck.

    Any ideas on how to do a hard reset?
