You might be able to use the file names, if those haven't changed, or scan the audio signature to identify the files. Unless that's what caused the problem in the first place, in which case you should probably investigate further to see which info is actually correct.

What patch? I'm just talking about general features. But for patching you would need to switch to the regular or portable version found on this site.
