I reinstalled windows on my computer, so I backed up my pictures and catalog to an external drive. When I moved them back to my C:\ drive, the catalog is connected to the backed up pictures on my external drive. I have tried reconnecting them to the C:\ drive, but it won't work.

Did the drive letters change when you reinstalled? The catalog should have a complete path to each file. But Windows paths tend to have a drive letter instead of a unique volume identifier, so they can get fooled if there are 2 volumes with the same paths but different drive letters and then the drive letters get changed...
