    I have the latest version of iTunes.
    I used to store my itunes music on an 80gb firewire drive. Got a new 500gb usb drive. transferred all files manually to this new drive.

    in iTunes i changed my media folder to this new drive.
    However alot of files aren't being read or found so i must locate each manually.

    Is there anything I can do to make iTunes read from the new hard drive now?

    that's not a good idea. you should let iTunes do all the moving lest it loses track of the file's location.

    that tells iTunes where to put newly added content, not where the current content is.

    you could try if this script helps.

    alternatively, you could repopulate iTunes with those tracks.
