so my brother copied everything from the old drive to the new one.
That's not how to move the iTunes music to a new drive.
See this -> iTunes for Mac: Moving your iTunes Music folder
Since you already moved it, use the script below.
See this script -> iTunes Track CPR v1.3
"This script attempts to locate the files of so-called "dead tracks"--iTunes tracks designated with (!)--that you assume are not actually missing but are still located in the iTunes Music folder in their "iTunes File Order" (Music -> Artist -> Album -> file.xxx)."
Yeah, I figured that wasn't the right way. :/
Thank you for the script! I read the read me, and unchecked the organzation box in the advanced settings, highlighted some test songs I wanted it to find, but it keeps giving me this error when I try to run the script..
Can't get selection of "iTunes".
Do you by chance know what that means/how to fix it?

Kinda tells me that the script is not getting the selected items in iTunes.
It may be a problem with iTunes 9.
I'll have a look later tonight.
Do you have iTunes prefs -> Advanced - iTunes music folder location pointed to the correct iTunes music folder?
Yeah, it's directed at the right folder..
I just rebooted iTunes, and tried running the script again.
It worked this time, but when it finishes, it says
iTunes Track CPR
Total tracks: 1
Total MIAs: 1
Still MIA: 0
Did that for a couple trial songs.
Tried doing it for a whole album, and the album disappeared off my library with the same little message at the end. Huh. Not good.
