If you directly click sync, it will erase all music on your iPod and replace with the content of this iTunes library.
So all you need is to get all existing music/videos from your iPod to this computer and iTunes. Simply use this handy one called Tansee iPod Transfer to help you http://www.gutensoft.com/Utilities/Tansee-iPod-Transfer.htm
The whole process goes as follows:

Firstly install this program on your computer. When you plug your iPod to the computer, this program will instantly display all songs and videos on the iPod.You simply select what you wish to transfer and click "Copy" button. Done. All your selected files will be copied to your computer completely and safely. Now you can easily add those songs and videos to your iTunes library.
More importantly, this won't overwrite any original files on your iPod.And all song titles are preserved.

In this case, all songs/videos (both new and old) are on your iTunes library that you can syn with whenever you wish to without deleting any files.
It even has step-by-step guide on the whole process:

Itunes will ask you if this ipod comes from another computer (since you formatted) and ask you if you wanna erase all thats on it and synchronise with the new llibray (probably empty !). You say NO. Then you synchronise manually by unchecking the box that says to synchronise automatically and thenn u check the box that says to mange manually the ipod. By doing that you're music that was on you're ipod will stay there, and you can coopy any new music towards you're ipod with itunes.

Delete songs from i pod touch 2nd generation

You must connect to the computer with iTunes. There you can select the music you want t delete.
For that wait till the iPod is backed up by iTunes, then on the left side click on the line with the name of your iPod. Then on top click on Music and then you see what music you can synchronise.
If you already did remove the original backups from the music on the iPad, there is a chance iTunes all remove all these numbers.

Apple has lots of info about every part you want to know about your iPod and iTunes.

How to add songs to Ipod

This is a tip explaining exactly how to add songs to your Ipod.

Firstly, you need to have Itunes installed on your computer. You can download Itunes for free from the following Website. It is always best to use the most updated version of this software.

http://www.apple.com/downloads/

Once you have downloaded Itunes, and installed it, we can continue.

Ok, if you already have MP3 files on your computer, and just want to add this songs to your Ipod, we first need to import all these files to Itunes.Here is how we do this.

To import songs in MP3 format which is already on your computer:

  • Open the Itunes software you installed.
  • From the iTunes File Menu click "Add to Library".
  • Now you need to browse to the folder where the music is located and select it.
  • The files will now automatically be imported to Itunes.
After the installation of Itunes, you need to plug you Ipod into your computer USB port using the connector cable which came with your ipod.
This is the how the USB port on your computer looks like.

This is what the connector cable looks like.

When you have plugged in your Ipod to the computer, Itunes will automatically open.

Now you will be able to see your Music Library(On the left), as well as your Ipod(On the right)

Al you need to do now is to drag the songs you want to copy to your Ipod into the ipod window on the right.

Charge your ipod after you have copied the songs, and start listening.

Kind regards

Delete music files from ipod touch

Bearshare is a program that can be used to download and listen to audio files on your computer. You can also use Bearshare to put music directly onto your iPod or portable music player. Using Bearshare to add songs to your iPod will save you the time of having to search for your downloaded files using iTunes. By using Bearshare, you can download a new song and place that song directly onto your iPod without having to open another software program.

Download the latest version of Bearshare (see Below). http://www.bearshare.com/ Install Bearshare onto your computer. When you do, Bearshare will search for audio files that are already on your computer. The program will then add those files to the "My Library" portion of Bearshare. Open Bearshare. Click the "iPod/Mp3 Player" option on the left side of Bearshare. Plug your iPod into your computer. A dialog box will open on your screen. Click "OK." The "iPod/Mp3 Player" option will be replaced with the name of your iPod. Click the "My Library" option in the top left corner of Bearshare. Any songs that you added when installing Bearshare or that you have downloaded with Bearshare will appear on the screen. Click on the song and then drag the file over to the name of your iPod found on the left side of the screen. Doing so will add that song to your iPod. Continue doing this until you are finished adding songs to your iPod. Disconnect the iPod and close Bearshare.

Itunes on my laptop will not sync to my ipod and has wiped all my music from ipod.

First of all when you sync your ipod with another computer all of your songs, videos and etc will erase by itunes application.Example the first sync was on your desktop using itunes and it was successfully transferred the songs and videos. But you want to add songs from your laptop, so copy the songs to your usb flash drive or external hard drive then paste it to your desktop computer. Then plug your ipod to your desktop computer and run the itunes application then add songs you want to transfer,by syncing or copying the song to your ipod your old songs will not be erase. Have a nice day

How do i download my own songs to the ipod

download the latest version of itunes from here
http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
Then install the program.
Copy your music over to itunes either by copying your CD's or importing your music that you already have on your computer, you can do this by going to File>add folder to library or add file to library and go to where your music is and import. This will convert your music to be played in itunes and to be recognised by your ipod. Once you have done this, create a playlist of music that you want on your ipod. Go to File>new playlist. and rename the playlist to a name more suitable. Then select which songs you want on your ipod by righ-clicking the song and send to playlist, select the playlist that you just created. Once you have your playlist and are happy that you have all of the songs that you want, plug your ipod into the computer, itunes will pick the ipod up and load the necessary drivers for it. You will notice a little picture of your ipod on the left hand side of the screen, click on it then click on and update your ipod with your playlist.

I hope this helps
