I've just downgraded from Vista to XP Pro Service Pack 3 and now the file path to my desktop has changed corrupting all my playlists, does anyone know how to change it to save me re-doing all my playlists?

I've done my external drive by changing the HDD letter and that's sorted, but still need to point the internal drive to the path I had while using Vista, hope this makes sense. :)

Open the playlist in notepad and change the file path in there.

Yeah I googled my problem too :p I just wanted to see if any of our boffins had a resolve :)


Open the playlist in notepad and change the file path in there.

Would I have to do that for every track in every playlist?

Would I have to do that for every track in every playlist?Yes, but by using 'Replace', it would be a breeze. For example :

Edit->Replace
Find What : "c:/xxx/xxx/"
Replace With : "c:/yyy/yyy/"

Will I need a search & replace program to do that Callum?

Edit: Is this the ticket then? http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htmNo, there should be a find and replace command just within Notepad, and most other text editors.


Sussed it now, cheers Roger & Callum :beer1: :)No probs :)
