My iTunes Library has completely vanished! (in iTunes, on disk it is fine...)

I opened iTunes yesterday and my iTunes Library suddenly was empty (10,000 items missing!). As if I was using iTunes for the first time! I Checked Preferences, all OK. I Checked File Sys. (Itunes Media folder) all OK. Still, in iTunes, my library completely empty. So, to reload my iTunes Media, I selected 'Add Folder to Lib' and selected my usual iTunes Media folder (the same one specified in Advanced Preferences) to reload my missing content. The content now appears (nothing lost) but I cannot synch my 4 iPhones and iPad any longer... I get the following:
I do NOT want to erase & rebuild my iPad and iPhones from scratch!  each phone & ipad having at least 10 full pages with at least 8 full sub-folders per page!
How can I hack the iTunes metadata to recognize that nothing has changed and that this (my laptop) is my one & only iTunes ibrary! (and always had been).
(PS I have backups from all iPhones & iPad in iCloud and on disk). 
I need some help here please...
thanks in advance,
-Billy
