The first thing that you should do is download itunes from the apple website at www.apple.com/itunes once installed open up itunes and then plug in the supplied usb cable into the ipod and the other end into your computer. From itunes you can then go onto the apple store and buy music from the store or if you have music on CDs you can use itunes to pull the CDs onto your computer and from itunes and clicking on the devices section you can transfer the music onto your ipod. Hope this helps.
Yes, it does seem like a rip off, but that little bit that seems to be gone is actually being used by the software that makes the iPod work, without it you would not be able to use your iPod at all. So don't worry, it is completely normal that you are missing half a GB.
I just had this issue- I bought a movie off iTunes, and could view it on the computer, but it wouldn't go on to my iPod. I looked around and found instructions to open iTunes and on the home page of your iTunes where it shows you how much space you have, you can restore original settings, etc., if you click on "manage iTunes manually" or "manage music and videos manually" and then click apply you will be able to move your movie on to your iPod. In your iTunes library you just have to drag and drop the movie onto the iPod icon that appears in the left menu when your iPod connects to iTunes. It took about 10 minutes for mine to fully upload onto my iPod- so make sure you wait to disconnect until it tells you to. I hope this helps! What I read is that when managing the music and videos manually instead of it doing it automatically, you can move the videos and music as you'd like.
