You need to turn off the auto-sync feature if you are going to use more than one iPod on the same PC. Coonect each device in turn to iTUnes, highlight the device, and select the "Manually Sync" item. Then you can have a shared library on the PC, and can drag the songs you want onto each individual iPod.

Hello, friend. If you are running iTunes below version 11, I can help you. Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left hand side there should be your iPod name, go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod. Or You may try this ipod transfer, it's
a nice iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete,
upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. http://www.ipod-transfer-copy.com/ipod-iphone-to-computer-transfer-cucusoft.html
Aaah, very simple procedure. First, plug your new iPod into your computer. Second, open up iTunes. Third, your computer should recognize your new iPod and will prompt you to go through a simple iPod set up, then it will ask you if you want to sync your music library to it.
Hope this helps!
An iPod can be synced with only one iTunes library at a time. once you got a new iTunes library or a new computer. You have to authorize your iPod to it at first, then you can upload music and video from the new iTunes to your iPod. But this way will overwrite the originial files on iPod with the new iTunes. You may try this iPod transfer, it can help you copy files from iPod to computer for backup, you can also use it as an iTunes alternative to upload music and video. It will not erase your original iPod files. It's safe and works pretty well for me.

I think you may have some how deleted you itunes library file. It's default location is: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Library.itl the file is called "iTunes Library.itl" You can delete the whole itunes file but all of you music may be deleted. Good luck and i hope this somehow helps. Jaxon
You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.
To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files." You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.
to "manually update ipod" if it is set to autosync then all tunes in the library which are registered as being on the pod will automatically update. each time you connect the pod the itunes sw will update the pod from the library.
when the pod is connected and auto sync is active if you delete a tune from the lib it will update the pod and delete the same tune.
If you still have all that music on your computer then just update itunes first then update the I-pod. if you don't you are going to have to use an after market program to pull the music from the iPod to your computer first then add it to itunes. This happens when the original library is lost in itunes or when you install a fresh copy of itunes on your computer.
