iTunes is not copying music to my iPod
I need help - my iTunes (the latest version on a MacBook Pro) is not allowing me to copy music from the library to an iPod.
Most of the music is imported in, not purchased from iTunes. When I drag to load on to the iPod, it says "File Not Found" - I am guessing it is because it is a mp3 not a mp4? I am not sure how it cannot be found, when I can play the song in iTunes on my computer?
Do I need to convert these song files to mp4? If so, what program can I use? I used to use AudioHub before it went away - I have since purchased a new machine and cannot access it any more.

iTunes cannot sync from iPod to library with new laptop
I had an iPod Nano which I sync to my laptop previously. However after I change my laptop to a new Dell laptop, I downloaded iTunes and tried to sync my iPod to this new laptop, but was unsuccessful:
1) iTunes ask "to replace music from this iPod with music in the library". There is no music in the library yet so I was worried this will override all the songs in my iPod
- iTunes only allow sync action from library to iPod but not from existing iPod to music library - why?
2) I tried to open up iTunes using the application copied from my previous laptop but the application will not open
Pls help as I don't know how to backup my songs into my new laptop and my iPod always require restoring and I'm afraid I will lose all my songs

There are ways of getting around this, but I wouldn't bother with it in your case. You still have your music files on your old laptop, right?
Once you're satisfied that the iTunes library on your new laptop has all your songs, you can then sync your iPod to the new library and safely answer "Yes" to the "Replace music" question.
EDIT: Hold up... that last comment...
