I recently moved a PC game to my D or second hardrive to save space, No poblem there. But when the game needed A Auto-Update I got an Error message(Forgot what It said). So I moved It back to the C drive and Wala! The game downloaded fine. I have noticed that some software works funny on the D Drive And fine on the C, Why and can I fix. Running Windows XP.

It could be either that you chose to install it on the C: drive at the time of installation. Then, when you moved it, it was still looking for the old place. You can solve that by uninstalling and reinstalling and choosing D: drive when given the choice.

Or, it could be that the game requires it be installed onto the C: drive. Some are like that but not too many. There isn't too much you can do about these type, unless you want to get in and write some code. (not recommended)

Usually this problem occurs due to the Registry. You really cant move a folder that contains a program and expect it to work properly. It would be similar to taking out your hard drive that contains windows and move it to a different pc. Just wont work the same.
