move script

hi guys i have a simple question

i have a directory with name of files in /tmp which contain some files

i want to check all files with file command and if they were MP3 or Wave sync them into new place . for example ( /root/mp3 )
i find all files and remove white space and rename them
next i check them with file command and if they were mp3 or wave we should sync or copy them with exact path into new place

eg.

/tmp/files/test1 ------> /root/mp3/test1

/tmp/files/New/test2 ----------> /root/mp3/New/test2

/tmp/files/New/last/Old/test-old ------------> /root/mp3/New/last/Old/test-old

files should copy into same directory in new the place

what can i do ?

i think to
echo $new |sed "s#/tmp/files#/root/mp3"
but it doesnt work Unix or Linux Image

what can i do ??
PHP Code:
#!/bin/bash
old=/tmp/files
new=/root/mp3
find 
/tmp/files3 -name *.* | while read FILE
do
new=$(echo 
$FILE sed 's/ /_/g')
mv "$FILE$new
file 
"$new|egrep -'MP3|WAVE'
if [ $? = ]
then
cp 
.................
fi
done

Try:

Code:
 
#!/bin/bash
old=/tmp/files
new=/root/mp3
find $old -name "*.*" | while read FILE
do
  newf=$(echo $FILE | sed 's/ /_/g')
  ndir=$new${FILE#${old}}
  ndir=$(dirname $ndir)
  [[ -d "$ndir" ]] || mkdir -p "$ndir"
  mv "$FILE" "$ndir"
  file "$newf" |egrep -w 'MP3|WAVE'
  if [ $? = 0 ]
  then
    cp .................
  fi
done
