I just freed up a second hard drive with the idea that I would use it to store all my music. But then it occurred to me that my WMP playlists will no longer function. I've spent years accumulating these lists and it would be a real drag to have to re-create them. Practically impossible.

Is there anyway to move/transfer/import-export these playlists so that they will reflect the files' new location?

I opened one of the lists with wordpad and the files are written like this:

<media src="..\..\My Music\Manu Chao &amp; Amparanoia - Que te den.mp3" tid="{C5FD7440-A87C-4438-8243-3BCBD88DE453}"/>

There's no indication of which drive they're on. It seems to me that the list refers to the drive it's on or something, but maybe I need to re-install wmp on the new drive as well (?).
