Problems Accessing Media Files From Start Screen Apps following File Transfer

  DD12345 20:30 PM 10 Mar 13

I transferred files from my Windows 7 computer to my Windows 8 laptop. Since doing that, none of my music, pictures, videos, etc., is shown as existing in the relevant apps on the Start screen. They are shown in Windows Media Player, but not in the apps. Does anyone know why and can tell me how to resolve this problem?
