Default ZVM 30gb won't pass Recovery Mode

Ok so I was using this a week ago (had it for a year with no problems); put it away then last night got it out to install that new hacked firmware with a custom font - but it booted straight to the Recovery Mode.

I tried all the options and none of them seemed to get anywhere (left the player on for an hour for each). When I reset it and plug in the dongle the computer recognizes it, it shows up in Windows and even the Creative software detects it - albeit only showing 50mb and nothing on the player.

I then tried formatting via the Creative software - to which there was an unspecified error after about 2 mins.

At a loss now since none of the options on the player work, and the PC software won't work either. Does this mean my hard drive finally took a poop on me? and if so guess it's time to upgrade to a larger capacity eh?

Please advise

It sounds like your player dumped its firmware. This is indicative of severe filesystem corruption or a failed hard drive. Try reloading the firmware. If this doesn't help, then your hard drive has died.
