Re: tracks disappeared from ipod after sync
When you sync the ipod itunes only syncs what you select. it is possible your music list got uncheck or you had checked only synced check songs. what happens then is the sync will replace you full library with only the songs checked. when you connect to itunes and see the summary page. on the tabbed line just above the main contents window choose music. look at your settings and see how it is set up. set it to sync all music then it will sync all the songs on your playlists every time.
you can also add and delete music by on your summary page uncheck automaticallu sync music.
then you can click on your music folder of your ipod and drag and drop song to the first column of the contents window. if you have any problems let me know

Generally speaking, you'll clean up your iPod with iTunes to erase unwanted songs and add new songs. You have two ways to delete music from iPod with iTunes, and they can be helpful when you want to get rid of the unwanted songs. iTunes provides automatic and manual methods to help you manage the songs in your device. When you are using the automatic way to manage iPod music, every time you connect iPod to computer with USB cable, your iPod will sync with iTunes Music library. If you have your iTunes Music library organized, you can delete unwanted music from iPod with this easy method. If you want to manually edit your iPod music, you can check Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically in iTunes by clicking Edit > Preferences > Devices. Then you can manually sync the songs and playlists to your iPod with iTunes. How to Delete Music from iPod
<p>Your iPod can function as a jukebox all in the road, with
the numbers stored in that you select and manage. To control what the numbers
are stored on your iPod, use iTunes software to transfer music to the device.
This transfer process is called "sync" your iPod with your computer.
If your iPod is synced with iTunes, you can automatically tracks from your
music library, or add them manually, depending on the options to enable
synchronization. <br />
<p>How can I sync songs automatically? <br />
<p>1. Connect your iPod to your computer. <br />
<p>2. Open iTunes if it does not start automatically. <br />
<p>3. Click your iPod in the iTunes main window. <br />
<p>4. Click the "Music" tab. <br />
<p>5. Check the box next to "Sync Music." <br />
<p>6. Click "Entire Music Library" for all the songs
loaded into your iTunes music library on your device to synchronize. <br />
<p>7. Click on "Selected playlists, artists, albums and
genres" for some of the music content to sync with your device. Check the
boxes for each song or album you want to synchronize the lists that appear when
you click this option. <br />
<p>8. Click "Apply" to sync music with iPod. <br />
<p>Syncing manually Songs <br />
<p>1. Click your iPod in the main iTunes window, click the
"Summary" tab. <br />
<p>2. Check the box next to "Manually manage music and
videos" and click Apply. <br />
<p>3. Click the "Music" option in the
"Library" heading on the left side of the screen of iTunes. <br />
<p>4. Drag any number you want to sync to the iPod icon. <br />
I think you are trying to sync with a different library than your own original library that you synced your ipod before. OR the original songs that are in your ipod are no longer in your library. There is a option that you could sync songs manually.
1. Connect your iPod
2. Start iTunes
3. Click on your iPod
4. Check option that says Manually sync songs
Now you can sync your music without deleting the old songs. I hope
Using iTunes' "Show Duplicate Items" feature, you can locate and manually remove duplicate songs on your iTunes music library. Once the library is cleaned, you need only sync iTunes with your iPod to remove duplicates from your device as well. This guide takes iTunes 12 to remove song duplicates.
In iTunes, click "View > Show Duplicate Items" in Music module;
Compare the listed song duplicates upon artist, album, date added, genre, play count, size, bit rate, and more to determine which item to keep and which item to remove;
Hold the "Ctrl" key and click each duplicate you wish to delete.
Connect your iPhone 6 to PC, click your iPhone from the device list, hit "Music" and select "Sync" to sync your library using your existing sync settings.
Automatically adding and removing songs and playlistsWhen iPod is set to automatically sync all music with iTunes (default setting), songs and playlists that are added or deleted from your iTunes Library will also be added or deleted from your iPod when the iPod is connected and synced with iTunes. If your iPod is set to only sync certain playlists automatically, songs are added or removed from the iPod when they are added or removed from the playlists in iTunes that are synced to iPod1. For more information about automatic syncing with iPod, see the iPod Tutorials and this article.

It sounds like you have your IPOD set to automatically sync to your itunes library instead of being set to manually select the songs. If you have it set to automatically sync then anytime you plug your ipod in with itunes open then only the songs that are in your Itunes library will be on your IPOD after you disconnect it from the computer. If you would have set it to manually sync then you would have had to choose which songs to put on your IPOD and also which to take off. If you had it set to automatically sync then I am sorry to inform you, but your songs are gone from your IPOD (and if you have it set to delete the song from the computer as well as the library then the song is gone from your laptop too)
If you are asking how to add songs to you iPod (assuming you want to use iTunes)
Sync your iPod with iTunes
Connect your iPod to your computer.
When the iPod icon appears in the iTunes window (below Devices), select it.
If the Summary pane isn't showing, click the Summary tab.
To automatically sync your iPod:
Make sure that "Manually manage music" is not selected.
Click the Music tab and do one of the following:
automatically update your iPod with all the songs and playlists in your
library, select "Sync music" and then select "All songs and playlists."
iTunes loads the songs and playlists in your iTunes library onto your
iPod, and deletes songs from your iPod that aren't in your library.
automatically update your iPod with only certain playlists, select
"Sync music" and "Selected playlists," and then select the playlists
you want synchronized.
To manually sync your iPod:
Make sure that "Manually manage music" is selected.
Click Music (below Library, on the left side of the iTunes window) and then drag songs and playlists to your iPod.
