Since you synced your ipod with another computer, you may have to restore back to its factory settings so it will work with your computer.

I plugged in a friends ipod to my computer to sync my songs on his ipod well it says it can not sync because the apple ipod has no service

This is Apple's way of not allowing people to share songs. I can't take your songs you can't take mine if you get a good hook up on your computer and you try to copy songs it will delete the songs on the guest player. You did not buy the songs you can't have them. That's Apple.

How do i download music to my ipod shuffle got it from a friend and forgot to ask how to use it

You must install I-Tunes on your computer, and put your songs into it.
Then hook up your Ipod shuffle to it and it should recognize the player and allow you to add songs to it.

The installation is a snap.

Download Itunes
Install iTunes (and have it open)
move songs to itunes (file add songs)
plug in the usb to computer
plug in the connector to ipod (computer and itunes should auto recognize)
Move songs to ipod (drag and drop)

that should put you on the right path.

IPod Problems - Connecting to Windows / Songs Cutting Short

Sounds like Vista has some setting causing it to want to check all USB devices. Maybe a virus scan or something?

Yes restoring an ipod resets it back to all factory defaults, which is to sync automatically. So whenever you restore you will need to recheck that box.
