Default ZVM stopped working as a MTP device

Hi all!
About December, my ZVM's 30GB HDD stop working and I bought a new 30GB HDD -exactly model- on eBay. I installed the firmware still available on Creative page, move some audio files and it worked well.

Last month, I added more songs to my ZVM as usual... but my device didn't recognize ANY new song added to my library.
I'm using Windows 8 64bits since January, and I had no problem before until last month. I tried on Ubuntu, but it also fails.

Here is a caption on how the files appears on device: 00:00:00!

On my ZVM, when I choose Albums, it shows nothing.
When I choose Artists, it shows nothing.

The only way I could listen to music, is creating a playlist. But when playing, it never shows the total duration of the song.
In fact, all the songs have lost their metadata.

That's why I'm saying my ZVM has lost is MTP 'features'.

Has anyone passed from anything similar or know where the problem could come from?

Can't say I've ever experienced that one…have you tried reinstalling the firmware?

I would say the files may be corrupt or they may not have any metadata. Do you do a clean up/reboot on the player?

Cool ZVM stopped working as a MTP device [SOLVED]

I did nothing, absolutely nothing: ZVM fixed itself -for now-.

I have just copy the SAME disc appears on the screenshot before, and it shows correctly.

Why??? Only my joking ZVM knows.

Thanks anyway!
