Nahh, you shoulden need to do that.

Ive never heard about that "authorazi" issue before...strange M8!

When i tranfer/delete files on my ipod i just open the Itunes program, connecting my ipod nano, make a ney playlist, drag and dropp the files to that list (ist on the left side in Itunes program) and then i click on my Ipod in the Itunes program (ist in the midle on the left side in the Itunes program). Then i dragand drop the files in the map i want in my ipod.

So , here is step by step how to do it
1) download and istall Itunes v8
2) start the Itunes program
3) connect your ipod to your laptop/pc
4) Itunes schould find your ipod and swow it
5) click on your ipod in the Itunes program
6) try to create a new folder in your ipod
7) delete that folder by right click on ot and select DELETE
8) In the Itunes, create a new playlist
9) drag and drop the music files from your laptop/pc to that playlist
10) click on your ipod when done with the drag and drop
11) drag the file or folder from your new created playlist in to your ipod
VIOLA! that should do it and the files you wanted should now be in your Ipod.

If you want to delete the files on your Ipod just rightclick on them and select DELETE


Good luck to you M8, i hope this smal lesson help you to solve your problem

You need to authorize and deauthorize the computers appropriately for using the different ipods on different machines.
Read this article from apple web site.

Deauthorizing a computer allows you to manage which computers can play music, videos, audiobooks, or other content purchased from the iTunes Store.
Authorization helps protect the copyrights on the content you buy. You can use your digital rights management (DRM)-protected music purchases1 from the iTunes Store on up to five different computers (these can be any mix of Macintosh or Windows-compatible computers). When you play an item you've purchased, your computer is "authorized" to play content purchased using your Apple Account.
Note: Songs you encode in AAC format from a source other than the iTunes Store, such as your own audio CDs, and songs from iTunes Plus downloads do not need to be authorized.
Products Affected iTunes Store
To authorize a computer to play purchases using your Apple Account
  1. Select a song, video, or audiobook you've purchased (in your library or the Purchased playlist).
  2. Click the Play button.
If the computer is already authorized, the item plays. If the computer has not yet been authorized, iTunes asks you to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the song.
Remember to deauthorize your computer before you sell it, give it away, or get your computer serviced.
To deauthorize a computer
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Choose Store > Deauthorize Computer (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu).
  3. Select "Deauthorize Computer for Apple Account" and enter your Apple ID and password.
Make sure you deauthorize your computer before you upgrade your RAM, hard disk or other system components, or reinstall Windows. If you do not deauthorize your computer before you upgrade these components, one computer may use multiple authorizations.
To deauthorize all computers associated with your account If you find you have reached 5 authorizations, you can reset your authorization count by clicking Deauthorize All in the Account Information screen.
  1. Click iTunes Store in the menu on the left side of iTunes.
  2. If you're not signed in to the store, click the Account button, then enter your account name and password.
  3. Click the Account button again (your ID appears on the button), enter your password, and then click View Account.
  4. In the Account Information window, click Deauthorize All.
Note: You may only use this feature once per year. The Deauthorize All button will not appear if you have fewer than 5 authorized computers, or if you have used this option within the last 12 months. If you need assistance on using this feature, please contact the iTunes Store support via email (http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/ww/).

Additional Information
  • iTunes DRM-protected music includes audio with a bit rate of 128 kbps and allows users to transfer songs and videos to up to five computers, burn seven copies of the same playlist to CD, and sync to an unlimited number of iPods.
  • iTunes Plus music refers to songs and music videos available in our highest-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding (twice the current bit rate of 128 kbps), and without digital rights management (DRM). There are no burn limits and iTunes Plus music will play on all iPods, Mac or Windows computers, Apple TVs, and many other digital music players.
  • While you may need to enter your account information again after initializing or formatting your hard disk, initializing or formatting the hard disk itself does not remove the computer from the list of authorized computers. If you plan to initialize or format your hard disk prior to selling or donating your computer, deauthorize the computer first, then initialize or format the hard disk.
  • Under some circumstances you may be required to enter your registration information again, but this should not use up multiple authorizations. If you think that you may have used up multiple authorizations on just one computer, see One computer using multiple iTunes Store authorizations.
  • The iTunes Store is governed by its Terms of Service, which permits Apple to change the authorization policy.
  • You can authorize computers not located in the United States so you can play previously purchased music.
  • An Apple ID based on an expired .Mac (pronounced "dot Mac") or Mobile Me account name and password can still be used to purchase items and to authorize or deauthorize computers to play purchased music.

Double Problems...


this problem happens when you try connecting a ipod to a new Itunes. If you know the lock code you can remove it temporarily until you have it connected and authorized for that computer then you can apply a lock code to it again. the lock code can be removed by going to the settings icon then general option and turning off the passcode lock. then plug into your computer and Itunes will start and go and authorize that computer then all should be good.
