Angry usbdevice

Need some help.
I bought a new mp3 player with one gb capacity. when I used it for the first time I unsafely unplugged it and I experienced some errors during playback
therefore I tried to reformat it with disk utilities but as I was in this process it stopped and a message telling me that could not complete the procedure came up.

Since then I was not able to mount it again, not even in a Pc, so I canīt format it again.

My system profiler tells me
USB Device:

Velocidad: Hasta 12 Mb/s
ID del producto: 65361 ($ff51)
Potencia del bus (mA): 500
ID del fabricante: 4310

but it does not mount
Iīm running Panther 10.3.9 on a Powerbook Titanium with 512 mb.

Any Idea?

Thanks in advance.

:/ Not wanting to harm anyone's feelings, but you aren't supposed to just yank the player from the USB connection when it's transmitting data. That's what the warning is for.

Yeah umm...if it was writing anything at that moment...it is quite possibly ruined.
You may get lucky and be able to reformat it with something such as Disk Warrior or maybe as easy as through Terminal using fsck.
