Talking Tutorial to change a mp3 player into a digital camera

Just connect your player to Ubuntu and with some magic Ubuntu changes it to a camera :P

But now my 1 gig Philips Shoqbox can not play any music anymore.If i connect it in Xp it is also changed in a digital camera and i am not able to put any music file on it.In Ubuntu i can but the player doesnt see any of the songs.In Xp i cant format the player and my question is can i do it in Ubuntu or Mandriva?Tomorrow i go install a new distro and is it a option to connect the device before i start the installation and format it then?And do i need to format it to fat32?Or is there a simple way to do it in a terminal?

Sounds like you need to reinstall the firmware on your device.
