How do I synch i-tunes on a new computer with my old i-pod classic?

Before you connect the iPod, you should install iTunes. The program is free and can be downloaded form the Apple support page. After installing, you better first setup your account. The same name you used to buy the music in the first place. Then connect the iPod to the computer and wait till iTunes starts and shows you the iPod.
Perhaps you have to authorise the PC with the account. You can have up to 5 authorised PC's with one account.

Here you find the software for your computer:

Unable to get music from my ipod to my pc

If you bought all the music from iTunes store, once you plug in your iPod to computer, iTunes will ask you 'transfer purchases' or not. And then you can copy the purchased music from your iPod to iTunes.
This way is not work for the CD ripped music and website download music. But you can follow this step by step guide to transfer all the music from iPod to iTunes, including the non-purchases songs. It's easy to understand and works pretty well for my iPod.

Ipod says the connect to itunes but computer says it is unable to

1. Reset or restore your iPod for a try, this can fix many general iPod problems. 2. You may try this iTunes alternative, I always use it to upload music and video to my iPod once my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, my friends recommend it to me, it's safe and works pretty well, you can also use it to copy music and video from ipod to computer for backup, it's useful when you lost your iTunes library. 3. Upgrade or re-install iTunes for a try, this is the method that I got from Apple technical support. Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.

The only valid tool for loading music on an iPod is iTunes.

Can not sync with itunes

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.
