so here's the thing, when you hook up your ipod to your computer, and the itunes alert pops up saying something along the lines of "your current ipod is not synced to this library, it is synced to another one. would you like to sync to this library?" hit NO. and the ipod will show up on the left side. from there, go to the options and click "manually manage music" instead of "automatically sync." that way, you can drag/drop any music to add it to what's already in there.
does that make sense?
what you can also do is take all your music out of the ipod first, put it all in one folder on your desktop or something, then you can disconnect, add those files to your itunes library, connect again and when it alerts you to "do you want to sync to this new library?" click yes, and it'll delete your ipod stuff, but add what's in your itunes library, which should be what's in there plus what you added.
does that make sense? (sorry for asking this a second time)
also, and this is important for getting the songs out of your ipod, do you have a mac or pc?
edit: also, person below me makes a good point, what ipod do you have?
