    Doesn't iTunes have them?

    Didn't you orgially have them in Itunes to get them to your mini? If so then when you plug in your new iPOD they should all be there.

    You just tell iTunes to sync them to the new ipod.

    That is the way mine worked.

    Resync the mini to the iTunes

    This is what I did (have suffle, PC/XP and now iTouch)
    1. make sure the iTouch is not pulgged in
    2. plug in your mini
    3. sync to iTunes
    4. Your iTunes should have all the songs now
    5. Plug and sync in your iTouch
    6. Make sure the option to sync all is on or all of the music you want are checked for them to sync.

    When you plug in your mini - doesn't iTunes recognize that it has just been plugged in?

    I have had a problem with this in the past.
    I rebooted my PC (Windows XP)
    Brought up iTunes
    Then plugged in the iPod
    It should recognize it and then sync it up

    So your itunes recoginzes your ipod...


    Within iTunes, can you right click on the ipod and select Sync?

    It doesn't have the option sync
    it has:

    open
    eject
    new playlist
    transfer purchases
    reset warnings
