Default Media Problem?

So, just two days ago, my Zen XFi started freezing up constantly. And I had the same problem many had, that the XFi would then refuse to turn on. It would turn on after a few hours of just sitting.
Just yesterday, I was trying to listen to it when all of a sudden it started to lag. I got 5 seconds in to the song, after 15 seconds of listening to it. It kept juttering. And after that the XFi hasn't turned on.
I have gotten into the recovery mode, and tried formatting and reloading the firmware, start from scratch, but part way into formatting a screen pops up saying "MEDIA PROBLEM", and same with reloading the firmware.
So I just tried "upgrading" the firmware without reloading. Upgrade failed, and now my XFi will only turn on when going into recovery mode, and apparently has 60 megs** of free space and I bought the 32 gig version.
So, anyone have any suggestions at all?

Oh yeah, one more thing...I also tried reformatting the player via Windows Formatting tool after all of this, and that failed, too.

Sounds like the memory chip in your X-fi is broken. Hence the "MEDIA PROBLEM" message.
