As long as your laptop is the same operating system as your main computer, this will be quite easy. When you plug your ipod into your main computer, pull up itunes and pull up the main screen for your ipod that shows how much memory is used and other stuff like that. In that screen, you should see an area that has small check boxes. On the side of one of the check boxes, you should see something that says manage your own media files or something similar to it. Check this box and it will ask if you are sure. Click yes and try it on your laptop. It should work then.

How do I synch i-tunes on a new computer with my old i-pod classic?


Before you connect the iPod, you should install iTunes. The program is free and can be downloaded form the Apple support page. After installing, you better first setup your account. The same name you used to buy the music in the first place. Then connect the iPod to the computer and wait till iTunes starts and shows you the iPod.
Perhaps you have to authorise the PC with the account. You can have up to 5 authorised PC's with one account.

Here you find the software for your computer:

My Ipod doesn't show up on Tune Tools


Hi,

Try Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.

My Ipod doesn't show up on Tune Tools


You may need to restore the iPod in iTunes. You could try to install Tune Tools on another Mac and see if it works there. It is possible that the software version you have does not support the Classic. There may be an updated version that you need to install to use it with the Classic. Check the authors site or the documentation for supported models.

Can't load music without deleting existing materials


I'm sorry, but there is no way around that without starting over. This means that the two laptops have different operating system and you will have to restore your ipod if you want it to work with your computer.

Hooking up New IPOD Classic Crashes computer


Try going into the settings screen on the iPod and resetting all settings. If that doesn't work you may be able to use one of the many 3rd party tools available to repair the corrupted data. You may also want to try connecting it to a different computer and running itunes on it there.
