While my iPod is connected to the computer, my iPod's library is locked and I can't access it.?

I can access my iTunes library, but my iPod's library (inculding music, TV shows, movies, etc.) is locked. The text is all gray and there is a small locked icon on the bottom of the screen next to the amount of storage I have left. The only way I can get anything onto my iPod is to sync everything with the iTunes library and I would like to manually do this. If I deselect the "sync music" box in my iPods menu it deletes everything and then I can't manually add any files. Please help.
