Library Moved (Drive crashed) - How do I update the UNC reference in playlists of the old location?

So the PC hosting my Sonos libraries died and I’ve had to reinstall my music on a new computer/Server which has a different name.   But the playlists have the old server name in the the path/source file info.  How do I fix the playlists I’ve created so that they will find the music in the new PC/folder.   

For example, when I try to play my playlist it will say:

\\OLDPC\Music\thriller.wav is missing

I now need the playlist to  point to \\NEWPC\Muisc\thriller.wav in order to solve the problem.

If I can’t edit the playlists I will have to spend an incredible time rebuilding them.

Thanks!

i should have thought of that - thanks!

Might it be easier to perhaps change the Netbios name of NEWPC to OLDPC instead?
