I have copy a lot of music files to my media player over the years and now some of the songs are not playing. The song will highlight in red and an exclamation mark appears next to the song and then I get an error message which states, "Cannot play one or more files, may have been moved, renamed or deleted." I have not deleted, moved or renamed any of my music files so I need to know if there is a way to recover these music files without having to recopy the songs to the media player? Some of these songs I no longer have on CD so I really hope there is a way to retrieve my music files. Please advise, thank you so much.

I did download the media player 10 two days ago, but when i tried to burn a CD, the media player stated that it wasn't reading my CD burner drive. So I had to delete and restore my old media player so I could burn CDs. This is not the reason I am unable to listen to my music files though, this issue has been ongoing months before I tried downloading a newer version of Media Player.

Can the driver affect the media player? I received a message stating that I may need to update my driver. Right now I have a Radeon 7000/Radeon VE driver. What is a driver and what are they used for? How can I get an updated driver? I really appreciate your assistance and I'm in the process of trying to download the cdburnerxp but it states that i have to have media player 9 first.

No, it doesn't say anything like that. I received the driver message when I tried to download the flashplayer a few weeks ago. I just thought that the flashplayer and media player were some how connected. I'm not much of a computer person. I just type on them. I'm not sure what version I have. It's the same version that came with the computer, and I have had this computer for at least 5 years now.
