I have a photo file (DVD slide show) that I made some time ago that's in WMM, but I can't edit it.  There is a Yellow triangle in it. If I hold the mouse over one of the blank photos it tells me the file address (e/trips/reunions etc etc.) but the files are now are in (c/pictures/reunions etc etc.) Is there any way that I can change something?? that will let me edit those photos.

I don't know--did I make myself clear about what the problem  is?

Windows movie maker stores information on pictures by their file location at the time the movie is being created.  So you can either remove the broken picture links and re-add them from their new location, or move the pictures to where they used to be, which will also fix things.

Thank you for the quick reply.
I no longer have an e drive so I can not return them. Have no idea how to do your other suggestion, I just turned 92 years old on the 5th of July, soooo! many things are over my head.
Maybe a step by step explanation might be what I need, if that's possible.
Thanks again.

What if you copied the file to a USB flash drive and renamed the letter of the flash drive to E:?

I ran into your problem a little while back and the simplest option I found was copying the pictures to the folder where you want to make your movie project before adding them.  That way they're easy to find if you want to put more images in the movie later.  You will have to reattach the pictures or create the new E drive as mentioned above to fix the broken links though.
