Here is the issue, it's a doozie.

When I built my new computer, I moved 2 files of music - itunes music and tune tools music (a utility for pulling music off an old ipod) - to a secondary hard drive, which I installed in the new machine. when I opened windows media player (win7 64 bit) for the first time, it did not show the first 7 songs on every album. When I looked in the files, I noticed that the album and track information was not listed on the first 7 songs, but it was listed on the files for the rest of the album. What is even more strange, is that winamp plays and recognizes all of the tracks.

My first reaction was to say f-it and use winamp exclusively; however, I have the PC linked with the XBOX in the living room to play music and what not. itunes does not recognize the tracks either, I can only get them to play in winamp.

I have 50+ gigs of music and don't want to lose more than half of it. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what this could be? Another note - I had a backup of my music files from before I moved everything to the 2nd hard drive. I restored the back up and the files there have the same issue as well.
