Connect your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod.
Or You may try this ipod transfer, it's an iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete, upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. It can also help you manage multiple iPods on one computer or manage iPod on multiple computers, even copy music and video from iPod back to computer or iTunes. So you will not lose your iPod files even though you switch to a new iTunes library. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well. http://www.ipod-transfer-copy.com/ipod-iphone-to-computer-transfer-cucusoft.html

iTunes is always the best tool for us to transfer music from iPod to computer or from computer to iPod, but for the situation of transferring music from iPod to new computer with iTunes is really difficult.
But there are some ways can help us to achieve it, like belows. http://support.apple.com/kb/hT1329
Download and install ITunes on your computer
Transfer all the songs to ITunes that you want on your Ipod
Have the computer running with ITunes also running, and hookup the Ipod to the computer using the data cable.
Once you have the Ipod connected to the computer, the computer will recognize the Ipod and open ITunes so you can highlight the songs you want and transfer them to the Ipod.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I just purchased Tunes Tool 2.0 today. I hoped to use it to transfer songs from my Windows iPod video to my MacBook. When I installed Tune Tools, the same problem occurred that you all were having; It could not detect my iPod and gave me a notification about a null iPod. I figured out how to fix this, and all my songs were able to be transfered onto my mac flawlessly. The steps I used are listed below.
1) Open Tune Tools and iTunes.
2) Plug in your iPod.
3) In iTunes, click the summary tab (if not already selected)
4) On the Summary page, check the box that says "Enable Disk Use"
5) A message will pop up, click OK
6) Open Tune Tools, and Your iPod's library should be there. If not, you may have to reconnect your iPod.
7) You will have to manually highlight all the songs you want to be transfered from your iPod to your computer.
8) Once all the songs you want have been selected, drag to your iTunes Library in Tune Tools.
9) A blue bar should appear and tell you that your music is being transfered.
10) The songs will be transfered from your iPod to your computer.
I hope this works for all of you!
Thats how its supposed to be when you get it. All you have to do is just go to www.itunes.com/downloads then just download and install itunes on you'er computer and then after its done installing open up itunes and connect the ipod to the computer and it will then install the software into the ipod which will give you the menu.
You may need to restore the iPod in iTunes. You could try to install Tune Tools on another Mac and see if it works there. It is possible that the software version you have does not support the Classic. There may be an updated version that you need to install to use it with the Classic. Check the authors site or the documentation for supported models.
