Hello, I'm Adriano. I was trying to get my Creative Zen Touch to
function with Ubuntu, using the mtpfs package.
I've seen some reported bugs on copying audio files on the player,
resulting in no directory preservation, and the same problem happened to
After downloading the source of mtps I think I've found the bug.
I think in the mtpfs.c file, the line "genfile->parent_id = 0;" must be
corrected in "genfile->parent_id = parent_id". I don't know why, but
when transferring audio files, the parent_id was set to 0 (meaning the
root dir of the device), while when transferring data files, the
parent_id was preserved.
Changing that line solves my problems.
I hope this helps
