Moving Music files in Finder don't show up in iTunes

I have been working on making some MP3 discs and have moved a few files in Finder and noticed that the changes didn't show up in iTunes. Sometimes I just renames them and the name change didn't show up, other times I moved the file into a different directory and then the file goes AWOL in iTunes.

If I want to clean up some of the directories where iTunes stores its files is there a way to do it so it show up in iTunes?

This is normal - you have to make the changes from within iTunes for it to keep track of what changed.

How do I do that?

For example, I have a disc with a bunch of MP3 files on it and I have just dragged them off of the disc into the proper folder in Finder. Those files do not show up in iTunes. How can I get them to show up?
