Sony Bridge for Mac error transferring to Xperia SL and Tablet Z

Hi Sony

I am a owner of a Xperia SL (LT26ii) and so far I've had ups and downs with the phone as it has been lacking a lot in periods.

This is however not my concern as I am having issues tranferring music via Sony Bridge for Mac (I'm a mac owner). 

When connecting my Xperia SL to Sony Bridge it detects the phone and I can check a playlist, the tracks are stacked and ready for transfer. When I click SYNC, Sony Bridge does as told and sync however only somewhat 50% of the playlist.

When I click the playlist again it checks of the missing tracks but only for one second, They consistently disappear from "the stack" from here on now. 

I have observed the process of each individual track as it syncs and I can see SB4M leaves the track after trying to tranfer. 

I have to mention these tracks have been on my phone before and some of these already exists on the phone. These is not tracks with DRM protection.
This is a playlist I am trying to transfer onto my phone.
Accidently Sony Bridge for Mac crashes on random occasions when this happens.

It is worth mentioning I also have (an incredible) Tablet Z and I experience the same issues doing the same action, with the same playlist.  
I am using Sony Bridge version 3.5(3503) 

Sony Xperia w. Android 4.1.2

Please Help or develop an update on this issue. The threads I have been looking at are approximately one year old. 
Kind regards

Re: Sony Bridge for Mac error transferring to Xperia SL and Tablet Z

That sounds strange. Does it happen with more playlists or is it with one specific playlist that this happens?

Can you see anything different with the tracks that are not transferred like special characters in the name or something like that?
