Default Unterminated String Constant

Hi All,
function call_song(song, artist){
    document.write('<OBJECT ID="mediaPlayer" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" CODEBASE="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701" STANDBY="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject">');

Apparently There Is Something Wrong with this statment and it is saying 'Unterminated String Constant' Why??

document.write('<PARAM NAME="fileName" VALUE="N:\Music Manager\Music\' + artist + '-' + song + '.mp3">');

        document.write('<PARAM NAME="animationatStart" VALUE="true">');
    document.write('<PARAM NAME="transparentatStart" VALUE="true">');
    document.write('<PARAM NAME="autoStart" VALUE="false">');
    document.write('<PARAM NAME="showControls" VALUE="true">');

Cheers Anyone who can help me!!

Because a backslash in JavaScript is an escape character so you need to double them up:
N:\\Music Manager\\ etc.
