That suggests some of your media was outside of your Project folder.

First copy over all the missing media or if you think you have already done so use the "Tools>External File Links" option from the menu and the Auto-Repair option to search your hard drive for the media.

Hi Jane not sure if your remedy will work as I saved my media to a USB stick before my old laptop packed in. Can I just delete the blank files from the Media list and start again ? eric

On the media window you can select the broken thumbnail and press the delete key to remove it, FH will "tidy up" any links to other records.
