1. If you have enabled AutoSync, everytime the iPod
is connected, the iPod will sync all your files. It is not only the
songs that are copied. It also copies the videos, photos and contacts
too. Maybe it was trying to sync them.
2. Even if it had really done with sync of all songs, video, photos and
contacts, it will always show the message "Do not disconnect". What you
will have to do is click on the eject button in the iPod icon which
appears in iTunes. The iPod will be ejected only when you eject it from the iTunes.
Be sure you have the latest version of iTunes. You can also try downloading software called Songbird. If none of this works do a hard reset of your iPod and put it into disk mode. You won't lose any of your songs. 1. Disconnect from the computer. 2. Press and hold the center and menu button until the Apple appears on screen 3. Before the Apple is gone, press and hold the center and left back button until it says "Disk mode". 4. Connect and try transferring songs.
If that works, you'll have to reset after you're done. Hope I've helped, I work on iPods and they can be a real pain.
Your best bet is to follow the steps here (http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/07/16/copy-or-transfer-music-and-songs-from-ipod-to-pc-and-computer-without-itunes/ ) or download a piece of software like, Sharepod, pod plus and if your a mac user i recommend iprober and podworks to transfer the songs to you're new computer. Once you get all the songs onto the new computer and imported into itunes, connect your ipod to your computer as usual and in itunes restore the ipod to factory settings.. when all said and done it will now sync the songs and playlist like before and will now be synced to that computer. There is a good chance you'll lose all of your playcounts..so hopefully you don't have any playlist that require those, as they will not work.
I hope that helps.
Did you use iTunes to transfer the songs? If you used Windows Media Player, that won't work, at least for me. To download iTunes, go to apple.com. If you think the songs are on the iPod, connect it to your computer and search it through My Computer. Hope that works.
