Hmm...sounds like you need to use relative paths versus absolute paths for
your playlist specifications...

Well, that fine for some systems, but I have well over a hundred albums on
this drive and over 300 playlists (for different players etc.). SO I would
have to modify all those if I moved my files. Is this a known bug?

Well, it wouldn't exactly be getting down to root causes, but as a
workaround you could try just pushing everything down one level by moving
all of your files into something like "E:\music\".

Perl Golf, anyone? That's a one-liner, including backing up files.
