There are two possibilities that come to mind: Either you are loading the wrong firmware, or your player's hard drive is bad.

Even though they have the same name, the 30GB ZVM and the 60GB ZVM are different enough that they require their own unique firmware. You cannot load firmware meant for the 60GB ZVM onto a 30GB ZVM, and you cannot load 30GB ZVM firmware onto a 60GB ZVM. Since it is possible to place a larger-capacity drive into either model, it is important to go by what it says on the back of the player rather than by how the hard drive reports itself.

If, despite loading the correct firmware onto the device, it is still rejecting the firmware and reporting errors, then the problem is quite likely a failed hard drive.
