I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not really sure surlygrl1969, a library in any media player is really just a playlist,
Moving the media files to a different location does not automatically update the custom Playlist
Ramesh has a solution on the subject.

Personally I would  just have WMP search the drive for the music and make new library.
Which version you are using may also indicate the difficulty since WMP 11 roll functions differently from WMP 10.
