1. The automatic settings in iTunes and iPods will not allow you to sync two iPods with one version of iTunes or sync an iPod with multiple versions of iTunes without the content being completely erased from the iPod. 2. This can be very aggravating if more than one person in your household owns an iPod or you want to add music from a friend's iTunes library to your iPod. Changing the iPod settings through iTunes will let you sync more than one iPod on one computer.
3. Open the iTunes software. Connect one of the two iPods to a USB port found on the one computer. If a small window opens in iTunes after the program recognizes the iPod, you can close the window by clicking "No" or the "X" in the window. 4. Click the name of the iPod positioned under "Devices" on the left side of iTunes. When you highlight the iPod name, a variety of tabs will appear at the top of the iTunes program. 5. Choose the "Summary" tab and options will be listed in the middle of the program. Select the option labeled "Manually manage music and videos." If a window opens, click "OK." 6. Click "Apply" in the bottom right corner to change the settings on the plugged in iPod. Leave iTunes open. Repeat steps 2-6 with the second iPod you want to sync on the one computer.
A Belkin Mini Wireless Optical Mouse frees you from the restriction imposed by the limit of the wire that your mouse uses to connect to your computer. The Belkin model works up to three feet away from the receiver and operates on a 27 MHz frequency. It's smaller than a regular mouse, making it easy to add it to a laptop case or desk drawer without losing much space in the process. Before you can use the Belkin Mini Wireless Optical mouse, you must install it. The receiver and the mouse should sync automatically; if they don't, you must perform the sync manually.
Press the bottom release tab on the top cover of the mouse. Insert the batteries included in the package and replace the cover.
Turn on your computer. Plug the Belkin USB receiver into a USB port on your computer. The drivers will install automatically.
Press the sync button on top of the USB receiver and then press the sync button on the bottom of the mouse to connect the two devices.
close Before you can install the Belkin mouse, remove drivers for other wireless mouse types on your computer.
Be sure to connect the charging/sync cable directly to the computer, not a USB hub. Most hubs are don't provide enough power to the usb ports to charge the ipod. If you need a method of charging the ipod while away from the computer connect your sync cable to a device like these: Even the USB port on Apple keyboards is not able to charge the Ipod.
If you're using the computer to charge the Ipod, be sure it stays on, when computers go into sleep or standby modes they stop charging your ipod. You may want to use one of the options below to charge your Ipod when the computer is off or in a different location than the Ipod.

Well, in theory you really shouldnt have connected it with another computer as they are only designed to sync to the same (origional) computer. But on the origional one you need to make sure that all itunes upgrades have been done and that the usb is connecting properly, maybe trying it with another usb cable? I hope I mhelped, if not contact apple as soon as you can.
