SOURCE: transfer

You will not have to restore the ipod, in fact you can take the music from your ipod and put it all on your new computer.
First you will want to download and install itunes onto the new computer. After the instal is complete open itunes and go to Edit. In edit click on Preferences; once that opens click on Devices; and make sure that (Disable automatic syncing for iphones and ipods) is selected. This will prevent itunes from wiping your ipod clean of music when it is connected.
Now click on your start button and open the control panel. Click on Folder Options and click on the VIEW tab. Look to make sure that SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS is selected. If it is not, select it.
After you've done that, connect your ipod to your new computer. After the ipod icon appears you should be looking at your summary page of the ipod. Make sure ENABLE DISC USE is selected and that the ipod is in MANUALLY MANAGE mode.
after that without ejecting your ipod close itunes. Create a new music folder on your desktop. Now open your start menu again and click on my computer. Here you will see your ipod. Double click on it to open it. Now you will want to drag the itunes music folder from your ipod into the new folder you created on your desktop. (this may take a while if you have allot of music)
After it is completed, open itunes again. If you music is not listed in the itunes library you will simply want to go to File in the top tool bar of itunes and select ADD FOLDER TO LIBRARY and go to your newly created folder through the browse option. This will update you itunes library with all the music now on your pc in this folder. Hope this was helpful. CHEERS :) If any of it is confusing hella hit me up

SOURCE: Transfer music from ipod back to library

it is completely possible to use your ipod to transfer music to a new computer.

Now these steps may vary if you have Window's Vista and not Window's XP. However, I will post step by step instructions below each item just in case you are unsure on how to do any of it.
First, on the computer, (without anything else open) click on the start menu and open your control panel. {If you have Vista you will need to click on classic view in the left panel of the control panel when it opens} Then go to Folder Options and click on the View tab at the top of that window, now select Show Hidden Files and Folders. Once that's done go ahead and close out of all windows.
second, you will want to put the ipod into disc mode.

Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.

After doing this connect your ipod to your computer. If it auto pop's itunes, just wait for the ipod to show up in the devices area and then shut itunes.

Third, open your start menu again, and open My Computer. Once the My computer window is open double click on you ipod icon. Once your ipod opens you will see several folders. You will click and drag the itunes music folder to the new folder created on your desktop. This step may take a while if your ipod is fully loaded. Once complete your music will now be on your computer.

From here, all you will need to do is open itunes. If the music is not auto loaded into itunes, click on File in the top tool bar and open Add Folder To Library. Then browse to the new folder created on your desktop and select it. This will bring the newly added music on the computer into itunes and you will be ready to what ever else you wish to do

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?

To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek

2. Transfer iPod files to computer smoothly ;
3. Transfer iPod video/music to iTunes .

Music transfer

Do you have a extra ipod wire you can try?

If not you might want to pick one up and try that.

Make sure your Ipod isn't connected through a usb hub. If so try plugging it directly into the computer and see what happens.
