You can't "backwards sync" (put music from your iPod back onto your computer) through iTunes. When you went to sync after you got your fixed computer back, I'm assuming iTunes tried to copy what was in iTunes (nothing) to your iPod, which probably is what caused these problems.
Assuming you still have the music on your iPod, I would recommend transferring the music from your iPod back to your computer (to a folder other than iTunes), restoring your iPod to factory settings, then moving all of the music files into iTunes and re-syncing your iPod.
There are two programs that are available to transfer songs from your
iPod back onto your computer. The first is iDump and the second is
YamiPod. I have found that iDump is the better of the two.
The link for iDump is: iDump
Hi, your ipod displaying data and not playing might be because you did not transfer the music properly or the format of the music does not play on an ipod.
You will need a converter to help you convert songs into an ipod format. Download from the below link:
You can follow the instruction below to know how to transfer music into an ipod.::
Most common problem for new ipod user is how to put music onto ipod. So I created this ipod tips to solve this problem. Windows media player is not able to upload songs to ipod. You must use Apple iTunes to get music onto your iPod. Windows Media Player can see the iPod as a hard disk. But not able to copy upload music from pc to ipod.
The steps to put music onto an Apple iPod with itune. When you plug ipod to your pc first time through USB, you might get this pop up message. If you have already installed itune .
You need to restart your computer to install ipod and then the next time you start up, your iPod will not generate any messages of this nature. You need to install itune on your computer if you have not installed itune. You can simply go to apple.com/itunes to download the latest version. It also comes with ipod CD. The next step is to launch the iTunes program. And it will recognize the ipod that you have plugged in
It shows one message to give name to ipod, You can stick with the default name for your device or give name to ipod. I also uncheck "automatically update music" because I like to control what happens to my iPod manually. When you're done with this configuration step, click "Next" : register your iPod, or just click "Finish".
Now, finally, you can see iTunes and also your ipod inside your itune: Click on whatever name you've given to your own iPod, and you'll see your music list, which is completely blank:
Now click on the "Library" link on the left column and you'll see what albums or music you've copied into your iTunes library. Or click on the "Browse" button on the top right (it looks like an all-seeing eye) and a new panel will show up with lists of songs, artists and albums.
Now select the song you want to put on to your ipod. then dragging and dropping that onto the name of the iPod on the left side panel of your itune. Now your song are copied to ipod.
I have had this problem before and it is a simple fix. What I think has happened to you is that you iPod is automatically syncing songs which I personally dont like. To change this plug in your iPod and then in iTunes click on your iPod in the left side bar and then make sure that 'Manually manage music' or similar is checked and then you should be able to go into the ipod and delete songs etc. and if you want to add music simply drag it from the library onto the iPod in the side pannel.
install iTunes on your computer if not already done so. open iTunes. put the CD in your CD drive of your computer - iTunes will ask if you want to add this CD to your library. Choose yes. plug your ipod nano into your computer USB while iTunes is still open and you see it appear as a device in iTunes. highlight the songs you just added to your library (choose Recently Added on left hand side then highlight them on right hand side) and then drag them onto the ipod device in left hand side. songs will be transferred to ipod.
I am assuming you are a new user with your ipod.
You can play and view your music on the ipod only if you transfer the files thru itunes.
You can go to the apple website or download.com and download itunes.
After downloading it.Install the software and add your music onto your ipod through itunes.
Now your ipod will recognise all the songs you add.
IT WILL WORK.HAVE FUN.
and if i helped u solve ur problem in any way...please help me by clicking on the fixya rating.. thank you.
If you are asking how to add songs to you iPod (assuming you want to use iTunes)

Connect your iPod to your computer.
