5.572 Corrupt Metadata on Portables (artist missing, etc.)

DX 9c
No other plug-ins (virgin install and upgrades)

Previous version 5.52 did not have the problem. I updated this week and it immediately showed up in the snc function (166 songs not in library - they were!)

When an external (portable) device (USB key, SD card or Droid) is connected, the metadata is munged in the Library view. Artist names missing or partial (first letter only), song title and album names ar fine.

Deleting the hidden files on root have no effect. Disks are not corrupt.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Bump - Still happening and now on Win7 32bit. When the USB device is not managed and used as a watch folder, there is no corruption/missing metadata.

Same problem, and worse...

I use a Creative Zen in combination with WinAmp... always worked fine untill this new version 5.572
Now the player has no name anymore and I cannot see metadata, finally I cannot upload any files anymore...

What to do to fix this?
