I tried the hard reset (press reset then turn on, then immediately press both MARK and VOL+) I left it like that for 6 hours then it apparently died, only to plug it in and enter the same loop. I've already tried the '10 reset' and hard reset numerous times. It's recognized by the computer by both eBook software and computer, though.
If it's recognized by your PC, you should be able to re-flash with the latest firmware from Sony.
