You haven't said enough that I really understand your problem (what do you mean "will not read the file?").

However, the first thing I would do is to (a) confirm that the files are where you think that they are, and then (b) Synchronize that folder (or those folders) in Lightroom.

How and where did you rename the files. Need more info from you about what you did and how you did it.

Not enough info. Did you rename them in Lr or Windows? Did you accidentally delete the file type (DNG, TIF, etc)
