    You didn't say what platform you are on (Mac/Windows) or what version of iTunes you upgraded to...

    Reinstalling should not cause the library on your hard drive to be erased, but you should always have a backup where possible.

    It sounds like one of the iPod drivers are not working properly, so you might try installing the latest iPod updater as well.

    Be very careful if the only copy of your 'tunes are on the iPod.
