Default Notmad does not recogzie ZVM60

I'm having a bit of a problem with the lovely little device Santa brought...

I've own a ZEN Nano, a ZEN Touch and a ZEN Neeon for many years. I use Redchair's Notmad Explorer to load/manipulate all three. I just received a ZVM (60GB version). My PC is WinXP with SP2, WMP11 and all of the current updates fully loaded and I've updated the ZVM firmware with the latest version (1.20.02) available from Creative.

Creative MediaSource 5, ZEN Vision:M Series Media Explorer and WMP11 all recognize the ZVM60 and I can load files just fine. The problem is that Notmad gives me an error message when I try to connect:
"Notmad detected no connected players running the MTP/PlaysforSure 2.x firmware."
Redchair claims Notmad is compatible with ZVM and the driver is set to use look for the "2.x" flavor. The screen on the ZVM shows the animated "docking" logo when it attempts to connect, but the connection fails with the error listed above. My ZEN Touch connects without any problems (so I know the hardware path to the player is working).

I have the latest version of Notmad (8.8.5) but their site seems to be dying a slow death (and no one there is answering the phone...), so I'm going a bit off-topic in this forum (my sincerest apologies), but this is driving me nuts!

Notmad is complaining about "PlaysforSure 2.x" while both of the latest firmware updates available for the ZVM60 and 30 seem to be "1.x" versions:
Creative ZEN Vision:M 60GB Firmware 1.20.02
Creative ZEN Vision:M 30GB Firmware 1.61.01
Anyone else had similar problems with Notmad?
