Thanks for the input on my last thread. reading the details on here I have a question regarding only being able to sync the hd3 to 1 PC. I understand why this is and all the Sony copyright malarky. My concern is that my home PC, is a lttle unstable. 95% fine, however, I'm perpetually having to remove spyware and other apps which install themselves!! I have all necessary virus protection by sadly broadband seems to be the bane of my life. The bottom line is that it occasionally causes my PC to freeze, I had a problem with a bluetooth mobile no longer syncing to the PC after it froze last and I'm concerned that if I have to restore my hard drive for some reason, the HD3 will no longer recognise it as the same pc? If this does happen is the worst case scenario starting from scratch and re-loading all music to the pc?
