    Yes, I've got a SonicStage gripe. Specifically, I was recently forced to junk my old hard drive whilst upgrading my PC (don't ask, it's a long story!)

    Anyway, now I've got a brand spanking new PC, I wanted to put all my legally owned music back from my NW-HD3 to my PC. Of course, SonicStage decided that it couldn't possibly allow anything so straightforward, and said "You can't copy these files here, son...this is a different PC than the one you used to put them on the player in the first place."

    I really don't want to have to rip all my CDs again...does anyone know how I can work around this and copy my songs to my hard drive?

    Cheers!

    Can you go online and register your device? If so, I think you can use it with up to 5 PCs. Not sure if that also means loading songs onto it though. I haven't tried this but it may work.

    Sony's protection/registration documentation may have more details on this...

    I've had the same problem. Thanks for the suggestion Drmoze, that sounds like it should work.
