I believe the way to format it is to hold all three buttons for fifteen seconds or so (or until it reboots). It should then tell you to connect to your computer. Plug it in, load up some firmware, and voila, you're ready to go. If it still doesn't get read by your PC, your only option may be to reinstall. What I would try first would be to see if you can update the software (by going to the settings yada yada as you normally would to run an update).

I know that I had my Zune stop being recognized before, but I can't remember exactly what I did to fix it. I think this is what worked for me.

Much luck,

EDIT: I was wrong, you hold just the home and media buttons. I don't know if holding the power button changes anything, but you don't need to press it. Sorry for the mixup.
