    this is probably a really stupid question with a really obvious fix i did google around first and couldn't seem to find an answer..

    when you plug your ipod into your computer and it shows up in itunes under devices, click on your ipod and below the picture of the ipod there will be 4 checkboxes, select the manually manage music checkbox...then your songs shouldn't be grayed out

    I think you have to be manually managing the music on the iPod to play the tunes from it. If it's in auto-sync mode then all the music will be on the computer anyway (at least that's what iTunes assumes)
