I think in that case, the only thing to do is to restart Rhythmbox.
AFAIK, it won't forget about the ones you imported (even if there are
errors) and it will recheck them.

This seems like a pretty bad bug to me.  When using RB to import CDs
it generates import errors for every song?  That is ugly.  There are
other applications that may or may not be an Apple product that starts
playing ripped music while the ripping is going on.  That is cool.
Showing errors on files that your own application is ripping, less
than cool.

I couldn't find a bug on this so I opened one.
