Default 8gb clip v2 partial flash death?

I've got a 8gb clip v2 that is suddenly only coming up as having 1.8gb total storage. I've formatted the device several times, run chkdsk within windows, examined the volume from within Disk Management... and nowhere does it show as anything other than a 1.8gb volume.

Apart from losing 6 gb of capacity, the volume that remains is still writeable, the device boots just fine, etc.

I've had flash devices die on me before, but never partially. Has anyone reported anything like this?

Sandisk support wasn't much of a help. ("... have you tried formatting the device?")

This unit was rockboxed with the latest firmware as of a couple weeks ago, but I've since flashed it back down to the stock sansa firmware in hopes of retrieving the missing space.

I just tried the sandisk recovery tool I read about elsewhere on the web, but that was not successful.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Fixed. Thank you!
