Songs shown loaded on the iPod on my computer, but iPod is empty
I have a 30GB iPod Video that when I connect to the computer shows all the songs loaded on it on the computer. However, when I disconnect the iPod from my computer, none of the songs are on my iPod. I've tried removing the songs from the iPod then re-loading them back on, as well as resetting the iPod. No matter what I do, it says on my computer that I have all these songs on the iPod, but I try to look or play them on the actual iPod, it's shows an empty library. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Songs shown loaded on the iPod on my computer, but...
Well first I have a question that may seem silly. Are you using iTunes? If not you will need to start doing so. Apple designs the iPod to only work properly with itunes. There for many other media players may sync the ipod for a time but eventually it will stop working. If so you may want to restore the iPod then attempt to re-sync everything. If this does not work you most likely have a hardware issue. If any of this seems unclear or you need advice on how to perform these tasks please do let me know. :-)

---------------------------- Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with
(the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect
iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the
computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to
factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.----------------------------

It's unlikely you'll be able to get back your songs. However, you can try using poddox (install on your PC and connect the iPod) and see if it finds any of your old songs on the iPod. If that doesn't work, try connecting the iPod to the computer and installing an undelete program such as Free Undelete and restoring files found on drive X, where X is the letter of the drive that your iPod shows up as on windows.
You may want to try calling apple. even if it is no longer under warranty, they can still provide you with helpful information as to whether its repairable or not...if under warranty, they will most likely repair it...or send you a new or refurbished one. Otherwise, it may be more worth it to get a new one, unfortunately.
