Re-instating ipod tunes



My pc was wiped clean and I want to re-install my music from my ipod back to a new i-tunes.
I connected my ipod and copied all the files into a folder in ‘my documents’, the folders are all labelled F00, F01 etc etc. To get them from there back to i-tunes I had to take them out of that folder onto the deskop and using ‘file’ ‘add file to playlist’ I managed to copy them all over into i-tunes.
Now, prior to syncing my i-pod I tried to play the music in i-tunes but it sends up a window telling me “the song could not be played because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?” Unless all those folders are all over the desktop and you know which name it is (as they all have converted file names ie ‘AAKL’ ‘AOXC’ etc etc it’s near impossible, anyone please help


Check your iTunes music folder location…Edit>Preferences>Advanced…
