Default white/pink noise on playback of new tracks or punch ins

I have a situation where all of a sudden any new track or overdub will record fine but on playback it's just all digital white/pink noise. However, if I copy the audio tracks and create a new session on a different hard drive, it works fine.
It will be a drag to do this for every session I've got on-going. I tried the same process on the original drive and I still get the noise. I did a "disk verify" and the drive seems fine. I still can't determine what's causing this. I'm using PT9 HD. with 2 cards and 3 192's. Any suggestions?

Interestingly, the existing tracks play back fine, it's only when something new is added, whether it's a punch-in or a new track.

Also I did the above fix about a week ago on one song and it worked fine until now where it's happening all on projects on that hard drive.
