You may try this ipod transfer, it can help you copy songs, videos, movie, photos, playlists, podcasts from iPod to computer iTunes. It supports all series of iPod including iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Classic, iPod Shuffle, even the iPhone. it's safe and works pretty well for me.

I can use the songs that i upload from winamp on my Ipod

Best way to transfer music on the ipod is through iTunes. Apple uses its own mechanism to copy music, pictures and videos on the device and traditional methods such as copy/paste and transfer from windows media player, winamp, etc do not work.
download itunes from www.apple.com/itunes
