    I have tons of songs with

    Well, since I got no answer, I just went ahead a few minutes ago and manually went through my music folder to locate all my missing songs for the ones with

    Sorry I didn't find this thread earlier but you could just delete all the songs then add the new folder, that all the songs are located in, to your iTunes library.

    I did that but it put all these songs with no information. So it's like making it worse if I were to do that. I mean yeah, I wouldn't have to locate the songs, but I'd have to enter all the information to the songs like Artist, Song, Album, and Genre, which would take 30 times longer than locating them manually like I did.

    Anyway, it's all good right now because I manually located all my songs. I'd just like to know a method in case I'm faced with more songs in the future.

    Thanks for your suggestion, though.
