Have you tried consolidating your library?
In iTunes go to the menu File --> Library --> Organize Library. There you can consolidate your library.
Another thing to try is to hold down the shift key when you launch itunes. It will then ask you which library you want to choose. Choose the new location and see if those songs show up.

If you copied over the whole iTunes folder then shift-starting-iTunes should allow you to get reconnected. If you only moved the iTunes Media folder then copy the main iTunes library folder to <Alt.Drive>\iTunes, move the media folder to <Alt.Drive>\iTunes\iTunes Media then open the library file <Alt.Drive>\iTunes\iTunes Library.itl.
If there are still tracks that can't be found then as long as there is some semblance of order my script FindTracks should have a reasonable stab at reconnecting things.
