Philips GoGear HDD6330 MP3... how to format

Pls can anyone enlighten me on how to format my GoGear HDD6330 on windows? the problem is that as i was trying to update the firmware, it froze and I had to reset it and unplug from my system. now all it tells me its to "connect player to pc" and anytime i do that my windows system sees it and recognizes it in device manager but it never shows up in windows explorer or any disk management tool i use.

I've searched all over the net for a solution and I've tried every gimmick i could thing of (including soft reseting and immediately holding the volume- button in order for Philips device manager to recognize it), now I'm just tired and want to format the thing so i can use it as a portable hard drive. apparently I'm not the only one to ever have this problem, loads of others have as i discovered in my search for a solution.

pls is there any working solution out there?

thanks in advance.

Philips gogear device cannot start

Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

NOTE: it is only compatible with Windows XP.

Select the Repair / Restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format and re-load the device system files.

If this doiesn't help, then the problem may be a faulty hard disk.
