    I did this, and now iMovie refuses to acknowledge that the project exists. I tried relaunching iMovie, and double clicking the project to open it but nothing works. Also, if I make a new project with the same name as the broken one, it adds a " 2" at the end of it, therefore it knows that the project is there. Please help as I am on a tight deadline and need to get this exported!

    Thank you so much!!  I moved all my files to an external hard drive BEFORE I realized you couldn't re-link them easily .  I downloaded TextWrangler through the AppStore since I didn't want to pay for BBedit and it worked great!  Since I am new to all this it took me a little bit to learn the lingo of what I was looking for but once I got that down, saved it first after only one text line change to make sure it worked (and it did!) then re-opened the document, did a command F to find all the rest and viola!  I am now making my DVD WITHOUT re-doing the whole project!  Thank you again!!!

    I've just found unexpected success by simply moving all the video files out of the imovie event folder (in Finder), then moving them back in again and allowing imovie to re-import them.
