    Recently uninstalled LimeWire. I moved downloaded files from "C" drive to
    "D" drive. After moving files, I now get the following message when
    attempting to play some files: Windows media player cannot find file.
    The link in the library to its associated degital media file might be broken.
    To fix the problem try repairing the link or removing the item from
    library."

    I have tried moving files back, but only thing happens is the total file
    number keeps increasing and files still won't play in Media Player. I
    also tried Restore System to date prior to move, but still unsuccessful in
    playing files. Can someone help me. I'm not a younster raised in
    computer age. Trying to play catch up. Thanks.

    Have you tried scanning for new songs (or new locations)? If not, all you
    need to do is pull up media player, click on tools, then click on search for
    media files. Once you are on that window, you click on the browse button and
    click on my computer and then click on d drive (if that is your where you
    music is). Once you set it to the drive you want to have the media player
    recognize the music, you then click on the search button. It should add you
    music to the library and you can play it form the media player. I hope this
    helps.
