Switching part of path name for all files?

Hey guys, sorry if this is covered somewhere else, but I'm not finding it and any help would be awesome.

So, I've until recently had all of my collection on an external Terabyte, with all files at some path like G:\Music Library\etc. It died, as terabytes are wont to do.

So, to recover my music, I copied all files off of my iPod, onto my computer.

Now, however, it has my old database still pointing to G:\... (My terabyte) as well as all of my copied iPod files. So now everything is doubled in my library.

It's not a big deal, but it'd be nice to keep my Last Played/playcount, etc information.

Is there some way to just switch the paths of *all* of my old files to the new? They should all be in correct sub-folders, Artist/Album/Song, etc, but the first bit needs changed. However, I can't edit more than one song's path at once? Is there a way to do this? Or am I hosed until I get a new Terabyte (Which will happen eventually... just not soon).
