JB Recorder 20 drive error

Need some help from the masters. I have a JB Recorder 20, and I started
noticing some strange behavior from it. I've been listening to podcasts a lot
lately, so I end up adding and deleting them from the Podcasts directory on
my Archos fairly regularly (i.e. several times a week).
Over the last two weeks, I have noticed that something was wrong with the
filesystem, in that I was having parts of podcasts overwritten by parts of
other podcasts. I tried fscking under Linux, and it would not correct the
problem. I booted Windows XP Pro in a vmware instance, and tried checkdisk.
It rebooted the windows instance.
I decided to try to format the archos and re transfer everything over to it.
Under Linux, it gave me the following error:
[defiant /home/storm]# mkfs.vfat -c -F 32 /dev/archos
mkfs.vfat 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
mkfs.vfat: Too few blocks for viable file system
I tried under XP, and it took a long time to do the format (~1 hr...For a 20GB
drive). The Archos debug information is as follows (places where the readings
are /'ed means it was bouncing between them:
AN0: 3FF AN4: 000/001
AN1: 3FF AN5: 000/001
AN2: 001/002 AN6: 32A/32B
AN3: 00D/00E AN7: 001/002/003
Batt: 5.23/5.244V 87%
ATA: master 0x200
Any ideas on what the problem is with the Archos?
