Could anyone please advise me on how best to restore my music playing facility on PC. I started to move files from C drive after being prompted to, due to lack of space, and seem to have done something to disable itunes, my music etc. as a result. I copied files to external hardrive. and now get mesage "the song....could not be found, do you want to locateit?", when I try to do this I cant seem to find music.

similarly on Sonos, I get message "unable to play ... (address)/my music does not exist"

any suggestions, I've tried Norton Go Back, but waont let me go back to before file copying due to "extensive file activity".

any help gratefully appreciated.

iTunes keeps a library file of all your media and it's location. When you moved the music to the external drive, you broke the link between the library path and the actual song. It's not a big deal and can be easily fixed.

Do you care about your song ratings and play count? If not, it's just a matter of removing your media from iTunes and then adding it back again. CNET has a good walk through for the procedure here.
