Kobo Touch N905B SDcard image needed

Hi,

Today while I was updating the firmware on my old Touch (I haven't used it for 5-6 years I am using a kobo clara hd) it just died. It was plugged into my pc and I used the kobo desktop app for the update. The screen is frozen and the device is unresponsive. My pc does not recognize it any more. I pressed the reset button on the back but nothing happened. I removed the sd card, inserted it into my laptop but it cannot be read. Windows says it is corrupted and needs to be formatted.

Before the update I charged the reader and switched it on and it was working.

Is it possible to fix the device by putting a new image on an sd card?

If so, could someone help me with the sd card image?

thanks
