Windows corrupted on me, which meant I had to reload sonicstage on my new PC. After transferring additional tracks on the Sony NW-HD3 I saw the error "CANNOT PLAY TRACK ERROR"
Can I save these tracks?
If not, do either restore factory settings? or Initialize the hard disk?

first off when you transfered them using the sonicstage software it put what are called digital media rights that locked that file to the pc that loaded it, dont worrie there is a way... open up the mp3 player in one window and find the music you want drag it over to your desktop, then get a program called tunebite and that should help
I hade just that prob. "format error" used to display. I did this:
1. dwl sonicStage (free)
2.- in the walkman went to menu/initialize/format
then displayed a confirmation screen, I confirmed
it displayed "formating...... COMPLETE"
3.- THEN plugged into the PC and transfered songs with Sonic
and it worked!
SONY Walkman MP3 players are incapable to transfer from the player to PC. It's a copyright thing. since your hard drive was replaced, your PC is no longer the same one that the player originally had tracks transferred from (according the the MP3 player). So, ultimately, those tracks will remain on the player until you remove them, they cannot be transferred back to a PC. I understand the annoyance, it's a pointless function, but for some reason, it has importance to SONY.
I have this problem too. Found that if you go to the folder that has the music file in it, right click on each problem file and select 'open with -> " and choose Sonic stage, then it will import the file. Next problem may be that it imports it with 'unknown' as the file name but if you then right click on the file within SonicStage and select 'Get CD info' it will find it. Tedious if you have several dozen/hundred files that won't import I'm afraid...
I ALSO HAVE A ZEN MICRO, I PURCHASED IT FOR USING WITH THE NAPSTER SERVICE NAPSTER TO GO. I TO HAVE THE SAME SORT OF PROBLEM I WAS FULL OF TRACKS AND IT THEN STOPPED RESPONDING SO I DID A RE FORMATT SO ALL THE TRACKS WERE LOST. EVER SINCE THEN WHEN I TRY TO LOAD TRACKS FROM NAPSTER ALL I GET IS A TRANSFER ERROR (I/O ERROR)
THESE TRACKS WERE ON IT BEFORE AND IT TAKES FOREVER TO LOAD. I HAVE TRIED CREATIVE BUT THEY WERE CRAP AND THERE EMAIL CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS A JOKE. NAPSTER TRIED TO HELP BUT AFTER 6 40 MIN CALLS STILL NOT WORKING THEY KEEP GOING OVER THE SAME THINGS. I HAVE TRIED WEBSITES LIKE THESE BUT TO NO AVAIL. DO YOU KNOW OF ANYTHING OR HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS, I AM A COPMPLETE TECHNOPHOBE BUT I WILL HAVE A GO.
