Here's the program I used to separate all of the bad mp3's from the good mp3's in my library, MP3Test http://www.maf-soft.de/mp3test/ , except don't do what I did and choose to put them in a Damaged folder in the album directory. Under Options choose a sepatate directory for the Damaged files and check the box to keep the file structure, so all you then need to do is run MP3Test to separate the good files from the bad, point AShampoo Music Studio 3.40  http://www.download.com/Ashampoo-Music-Studio/3000-2167_4-10025639.html (Fully Working 30 Day Trial) at the Damaged directory to fix all of the bad ones in the Damaged folder and then just copy the contents of the Damaged folder back into your good music directory and it will put all of the songs back in place (files will now be fixed and still in the correct directory structure) doing it this way will save days using AShampoo, as it doesn't need to scan the good files. Then in the future if you run across some bad files just run it through AShampoo again.
