I have a video in Progress (not exported/rendered) which is saved on what I believe is C:/ or locally on this computer. Used to work fine but all my files were on K:/ which is an external hard drive. I recently got a new computer so have been swicthing things around (ie I moved the external to the new comp.) I realize that my external hard drive may not be K:/ when i re-plug it into this computer. Despite my trying to plug other USBs in (ie to fill up D:; E; etc, i cannot make my External hard drive my K:/ therfore Adobe Premier Elements will not load any pics/music etc. and play back as usual. How can i make the program recognize my External drive so it loads my photos/vid and music play locally again without going one-by one (ie "find") individulally which will takes eons!
You can try manually naming your external drive your K drive.
Open Disk Management. (In the Control Panel, it's under System and Security or, depending on, on some operating systems, under Administrative Tools -- under Computer Management.)
Right-click on the drive and select Change Drive Letter and Paths.
Here are more detailed instructions, if you need them.
