Default Clip+ Wont turn on, shows up as M200/4mb floppy! What the christ?!

So my old Clip+ finally decided to pull a wild card on me. It's died about 20 times since I've gotten it about 15 months ago. Usually the standard reset tricks work(Holding power button, holding Power+Home, Holding Power+Volume, charging over night, baking at 300 degrees for 10 minutes) But this time nothing seems to work.

Every time my Clip+ has died before, when I plugged it into USB, the computer wouldn't detect anything. Normally you get the Sansa CLIPP and a Removable Disk Drive. This time the computer is detecting the Clip+ as a Sansa M200! Furthermore, I get a floppy drive that is 4mb and not formatted.

I've tried to format the "floppy" and the computer hangs for about 20 minutes before telling me the format failed followed by the floppy cannot be formatted.

What should I do oh Gurus of Magical Media Devices?

EDIT: Before anyone asks; no I did not drop, splash water on, or try to update the firmware of the Clip+ in question. I was listening to music and it started looping a section of the song, froze, turned it self off, wouldn't turn back on.
