"Cannot play track error"

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?

Sony esupport says the track is damaged and has to be deleted and then reloaded - assuming you've got the track saved seperately in another format like mp3

I have Sony NW HD5 MP3, had to replace hard drive in my laptop.

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.
