Hung at M Screen, Xoom does not recognize SD Card
I was running the Team Tiamat rom on a unlocked Xoom, and encrypted the data for security. The encrypted Xoom worked for a while, but began to boot into a limited log in screen (could only see a 3cm square in the middle, the rest was black). I could still log in. Then, I began to be able to log in, but the Xoom would hang on the little green gear android. I then tried booting into recovery and doing a factory reset. This seems to have worked, but the Xoom is not stuck at the M screen. When I tried to load the stock rom via SD card to just put the thing back to normal, the xoom would not recognize the SD card reader. I think I'm bricked, but I'm sure there must be some way to get the things back.
Oh, and I tried going into fastboot to load a ROM via the SDK, but the Xoom hung on the "preparing fastboot" screen and my Mac didn't recognize it. Is this just a matter of getting to a Windows machine with the right drivers?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us. Make sure the Xoom has charged 30 minutes past when the charge indicator turns green and then try a soft reboot, press and hold the power button and the volume up button together until the Xoom starts to reboot, then release them both. If that doesn't help reboot to recovery and wipe your cache partition and the davlik cache and reboot. You do have a soft brick and it's fixable, keep us informed.
