You will not have to restore the ipod, in fact you can take the music from your ipod and put it all on your new computer.
First you will want to download and install itunes onto the new computer. After the instal is complete open itunes and go to Edit. In edit click on Preferences; once that opens click on Devices; and make sure that (Disable automatic syncing for iphones and ipods) is selected. This will prevent itunes from wiping your ipod clean of music when it is connected.
Now click on your start button and open the control panel. Click on Folder Options and click on the VIEW tab. Look to make sure that SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS is selected. If it is not, select it.
After you've done that, connect your ipod to your new computer. After the ipod icon appears you should be looking at your summary page of the ipod. Make sure ENABLE DISC USE is selected and that the ipod is in MANUALLY MANAGE mode.
after that without ejecting your ipod close itunes. Create a new music folder on your desktop. Now open your start menu again and click on my computer. Here you will see your ipod. Double click on it to open it. Now you will want to drag the itunes music folder from your ipod into the new folder you created on your desktop. (this may take a while if you have allot of music)
After it is completed, open itunes again. If you music is not listed in the itunes library you will simply want to go to File in the top tool bar of itunes and select ADD FOLDER TO LIBRARY and go to your newly created folder through the browse option. This will update you itunes library with all the music now on your pc in this folder. Hope this was helpful. CHEERS :) If any of it is confusing hella hit me up

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?


To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek
