Default Kindle Fire stuck in TWRP loop, can't access sd card. Suggestions?

Is there any way to get out of a twrp boot loop? I can get into the twrp menu but haven't been able to do anything else. Factory restore does nothing, and I can't access the sd card. There are no backups and no update.zip files on the kindle as of now.

The kindle fire utility reads:
ADB status: Offline
Boot Status: Unknown

From KFU I can get it to boot in normal and recovery mode, but each time I try to boot in Fastboot I get the error message 'Oops... something went wrong. We are unable to locate your Kindle Fire. Make sure it is plugged in and powered on.' The Kindle shows up in Device Manager under Android Phone as Android ADB Interface

I did manage to get the adb command to work from the prompt on a different computer, but nothing showed up when it listed the devices. I've tried on both a Vista and 64 bit Windows 7.

When using the twrp, anything that involves writing to or wiping the sd card receives this error E:failed to mount /sdcard (invalid argument)

I appreciate any help I can get. I'm at a standstill on this one.

Man that's weird...corrupted maybe? And you can't even wipe the SD card?
