Desperate looking for some help .....

Ok so I bought the Archos FM Recorder, when it was delivered : worked fine

Hooked it up to my PC with USB, copied about 10GB of mp3 during the night

the next morning it was turned off
I fully loaded the batteries (about 10 hours) turned the unit of

The next day turned it on again, and when started to navigate, each few
keypresses it flashed the to USB screen
then I came back to the root directory.
So I thought maybe a corrupt file or directory, hooked it up to my PC again,
did a check disk
found 1 crosslinked file so I removed that, disconnected it from my PC again
(always by properly stopping the device first)

it still thinks it is connected to USB, and thinks it is charging the
when I poweroff and power on again, same
it even does not load a different firmware

so I removed the Rockbox firmware and reloaded the original firmware ...
same story

so I REALLY hope someone can help me out here

  Hello. I have recently dropped my Archos into a 4 foot above ground swimming pool. It was underwater for 1 second. I have let it dry out for 4 days. It appeared to be operational again. It was playing things fine. I then hooked it back up to my computer to add some files. After unhooking it, when turned on, it gets stuck into "USB Mode" and I cannot do anything. Everytime I turn it on, regardless of being hooked up to the PC or not, it reads USB Mode. Is there any fixing this, or am I screwed?
