    I heard this iPod to iPod/Computer/iTunes works pretty good on this.

    AVCWare iPod to iPod/Computer/iTunes Transfer can quickly and easily transfer your iPod songs, vdieos, photos, playlists, ratings, and other info directly to iTunes, transfer music and videos from any iPod back to any Windows computer. It can also transfer music and videos from your iPod to iPhone or other iPods.

    All types of iPod/iPhone are supported. It saved me time and money.

    I advise you to use it. Really save time.

    Don't auto sync because ipod can only sync with one computer itunes or the ipod files will be erased.

    itunes blocks this function since itunes is the tool with one way to transfer files from itune to ipod. you must utilize other tools to achieve that. There're couple of tools for transferring the files between ipod and computer (for backup)depends on your demands, e.g transfer only songs/videos, transfer photos etc. You can have a look of below review site, hope it useful.

    Yes, if you directly click sync, it will erase all music on the iPod and replace with the content of your iTunes library.

    But here is a solution. All you need is to get all existing music/videos from the iPod onto your computer and iTunes. Simply use this popular program called Tansee iPod Transfer

    The whole process is easy and safe.

    With just a few simple clicks, it will help you copy all videos/songs from iPod back to your selected folder on your computer, and then you can easily add those songs back to iTunes. See detailed guide.

    More importantly, this won't overwrite any original files on the iPod. And all song names 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.

    Here is step-by-step guide on the whole process:

    Best luck!

    You may try this ipod transfer, it's a nice iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete, upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. It can also help you manage multiple iPods on one computer or manage iPod on multiple computers, even copy music and video from iPod back to computer or iTunes. So you will not lose your iPod files even though you switch to a new iTunes library. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well.

    Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.
