If you want to make everything from Linux, see

Your device is a MTP one (no fat32 or anything) similar to one of the 
protocols used in some cameras. gPhoto (recent version) should allow you 
to transfer the firmware to transform it into a fat32 one.

gPhoto in Breezy is not recent enough (you would have to compile it) but 
Dapper's *might* be ok (check before, because sometimes non-critical 
packages aren't really up to date (the right gPhoto version dates from 
before Upstream Version Freeze, but you never now.

Ideally, if you have no access to a Windows XP with wmp10, try to use a 
Live CD. Just check if Dapper's gPhoto is up to date, then you an boot 
it, install gPhoto in the live session and follow the instructions. Else 
check Live CD that countains gPhoto, or ones that would allow you to 
install it easily (maybe Knopix, Fedora, Mandrake, etc...)
