Answering from your other post:

If disk allocation is showing the wrong location for the files... Change the location.

Simply I have upgraded my PC, now with Windows Vista, and added a Fire Wire Hard Drive. Previously I had used an XP based system and a USB driven external hard drive, anticipating problems until I upgraded.
My issue is that the sessions I have saved on the USB drive will not open properly on the new system. All the tracks are there, but no wav. data visible or audible.
What dumb thing am I missing, apart from the data that is......
I have simply dragged the session files from the old to the new.
You would probably be better off doing this:
  • Open the session in Pro Tools from the original USB location.
  • Ensure that everything is there and that the session works as expected.
  • From the Pro Tools menu, select File->Save Copy In...
  • Ensure that the Session Parameters are the same
  • In the "Items to Copy" section of the Save Session Copy dialog, select "All Audio Files" (and anything else that is relevant to the session)
  • click OK
  • Select your new firewire drive as the destination, check/correct the file name as you desire, and click "Save".
