I have a Cowen IAudio 5 player which does not switch on - I thought it was the battery, but this is not the case.

When plugged into laptop it shows Ready / USB on the LCD.

But I cannot format it.

I've used Disk Utility 2.30.1 and it shows capacity 0.0 KB (0 Bytes) and that it's not partitioned. I'm sure the player has a capacity of 1GB

Any ideas / help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Bearing in mind that these things use solid state drives, it is possible that it's worn out and died, indeed, the symptoms you describe sound pretty much like what one would expect.
Where there any problems with it before it reached the stage where it would not start?

As far as I'm aware there was no obvious problems with the player.
During the time that it worked, there was only two tracks on it.
