Had a 30 G iPod and iTunes installed on my computer. All is well. Got a new 80 G iPod as a gift and synched iTunes stuff already in my computer to it (mostly audio). PROBLEM: In the menu, alot of the artists names are missing but all af the songs can be found in the songs menu. QUESTION: How do I get the artist names to be listed in the menu?

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.
What you will need to do is download itunes (if you don't have it already) from the apple website at www.apple.com/itunes once installed open it up and then plug in your ipod into the computer using your usb cable. It may be a case that you will need to charge the ipod before you can use it. Once it is charged you will be able to use itunes to synch your music and other stuff from your computer to your ipod.
The apple site also has ipod manuals on it that would probably be a good thing to download they are available at http://support.apple.com/manuals/#ipod
If you just purchased it, you will need to install iTunes on your computer and connect the new Touch to the PC after iTunes installs. When you use your Touch for the first time, it needs to synch/register via iTunes first. Also, to unlock it, just slide the slider on the bottom of the screen after synching with iTunes.
Install iTunes on your computer. It is available from apple for a free download by clicking here.
Then follow the steps outlined in this tutorial to guide you in moving the music library from WMP to iTunes.
If you already have a music library in iTunes, simply plug your ipod in to your computer and synch the ipod with your library. It will do this automatically in most cases.

All you have to do is download and install iTunes, and when you put in a CD it will automatically ask you if you want to import the music on it to iTunes. Then just plug your iPod in, if it was brand new when you got it, you'll have to go through a quick and easy set up, if it wasn't then it should already be registered and ready to go!
Hope this helps!
Try it on another computer and if it happens its the ipod.
Or try restalling itunes with the lates version (7.7.1)
If that doesnt work try using a different program for your ipod eg Jriver media center
I remembered that I had to reset my ipod once before and since I had already uninstalled and reinstalled itunes I thought it must be the ipod. So, I pushed the enter and the play buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds to reset the ipod and when I connected it to itunes this time, it was working!!!
