Brand new JBRv2 - "No valid FAT16/32 partition found"

I'm having a very strange problem. I've already emailed Archos support
but haven't got a reply yet so I'm seeing if anyone on this list has any
The very first time I turned on my new Recorder v2 I got this message:
File system error
No valid FAT16/32 file system found
Please format drive
So I hooked it up to my XP computer via USB2.0 and it sees the drive
just fine as a 20gb FAT32 partition. I can copy files back and forth
without any problems! But when I boot it up without a computer
connection I get the same above error. I tried reformatting the drive
with Windows quick format, Windows full format, Partition Magic 7, all
with no luck. chkdsk reports no errors. I even tried a 2GB FAT16
partition just for kicks, but no luck there either. Battery was charged
for 6+ hours by the way. I'm stuck, it is obviously a valid partition
because I can use the drive in Windows, but the Archos firmware doesn't
Google only returned one message on this mailing list where someone had
this error after using it for a while. Not the same issue as I'm having
though, since he couldn't see the drive on a computer either.
Anyone have any ideas?
