Using flashed Rockbox, if an unrecognized disk format is
found, usb access is not possible.

A friend, using a flashed ajbr, accidently re-formatted
his 40Gb ajbr on windows XP. Since it was 40Gb, XP did
an NTFS format. When he re-booted the ajbr, Rockbox
reported a disk error [OK so far...]. >HOWEVER< when
he plugged in the usb connection, Rockbox failed to
allow usb access to correct the problem.

The original archos firmware correctly identifies the disk
as needing to be formatted, >BUT< it STILL allows usb
access to the HD to reformat the drive to FAT32.
This task depends upon

Agreed, this should be fixed.
