I have a first generation iPod that is in great shape and has been working fine.  Lately Windows 7 started warning me about scanning it. I then initialized it and synced it. Everything worked great until I synced with 5 new songs, then when playing in the car it froze.  I couldnt remove it so I waited a few days and it seemed to be back to normal.  
Upon further investigation, I come to find out that it only has those 5 songs, not the other 1000 or so.  So I thought if I sync it, life would be great. Nope. Now my library only has those 5 songs.
I have backups of my music and my C: Drive.
The music directory, used by iTunes still has the 1000+ songs. So I thought I could go into d:\Music and highlight the subdirectories and import.  Only imported 100 songs.

Is there a way I can start from scratch with iTunes and my D:\Music?
After that, is it possible to use my C:drive backup to restore the playlists ? Right now the play lists are hosed as well.

Frustrating!!!!
