Moving files without getting error messages

    Usually I can move mp3 files to different folders (within explorer), and
    windows media player will automatically amend the file path. Sometimes
    though, it doesn't pick this up and gives a blue exclamation mark with an
    error (wmp cannot locate this file). I can't work out what I've done
    differently, but it's very annoying having to add them all again. Any ideas?

    What version of WMP/Windows?

    If it's WMP 11 or lower, you can press F3 in WMP to bring up the Add To
    Library-dialog. Click OK and wait until it finishes, that should correct
    the file paths of moved files.

    Regards
