Windows can't find files

Hi, i have loads of albums on Windows Media Player. Some were uploaded from my CD collection, but most came from a friends portable HDD. I haven't played them for a while but now want to make a compilation disc for the car. However, an error comes up saying 'Windows can't find the files. They may have been renamed/deleted etc'. The error seems to only apply to those songs from the HDD, not the ones from my original cd's. Is there any way of retrieving these files please? - Tony

Assuming you copied them from the external HDD? If not you will have to plug the HDD back in.

If you did copy them then let the Media Player do a search for music on your PC and it will find them.
