Thanks tom, I have tried both of those things but sadly that hasn't helped.

You can boot to the original iRiver firmware by ensuring that the unit is
turned off, then keeping the record (lower left one) pressed while you
switch the unit on. Another thing worth trying is inserting the USB cable,
then switching the unit on. The Rockbox bootloader should then enter USB
mode and let you access it via your computer. If this does not work,
something is seriously wrong. Hope you get it going again!
