Default 1600 songs NONE in itunes!?

ok im more than a little itunes M.R. and after reformatting my first hard drive (copying all my songs to second hd) i reinstalled itunes, but now i have 1600 songs in many different unorganized files (all under one directory d:\songs) but i have no idea how to put them all back into ITUNES.... the easier the process the better


any help would be much appreciated

EDIT M.R. : mentally retarded

with Itunes, they have file protection, so you have to buy "software" to get them on another computer.

That's what Best Buy told me...

Can't you just go to the file menu, and click import (or add) directory, select the directory where everything is stored, and then itunes will automatically build a library and convert the songs to AAC format and the likes?

Put them all into 1 folder, i.e "my music" then open itunes and go file<import folder. then choose "my music" folder and all your songs should be imported.

you only have to buy some $10 software. Its because Apple is a pain in the A$$, and protects the IPOD files so they cant be transferred to a new PC (dont ask me why)
