SQL server 2005 sql query problem

I am having problems writing this sql query, help would be much appreciated:

I have two tables
ageBracketPercent and ageBracketCount
ageBracketPercent has the following fields
mediaId
lowAge
highAge
percentage

ageBracketCount has these fields
mediaId
lowAge
highAge
count

I am trying to retrieve all records in ageBracketCount that are not
represented in agePercentCount so something like this

select * from ageBracketCount
where [the combined key (mediaId, lowAge, highAge) does not exist in ageBracketPercent)]
(I wonder why this SQL query is not working!;-)

so in other words, if I have this data in the tables
ageBracketPercent:
mediaId      lowAge      highAge percentage
1          1              10            50
1          25           100        30

and this data in ageBracketCount
mediaId      lowAge      highAge count
1          1              10            10000
1          10               25            50000
1          25           100            1000

I want to get to the middle record with this data
mediaId      lowAge      highAge count
1          10               25          50000
