I've been googling, err, "gmane searching", the list for "format" and
"reformat" with FAT, or even "LBA FAT".  However, this will erase the
existing OS on the device, such that I'd have to boot windows and unpdate
the, presumably, flash PROM, or, whatever the technique is, to re-install
the OS for the device.  Also, I'm including "player" and "mp3" as possible
search terms.
