    Hii I bought a new laptop and was wondering how I could resync the iPod to the new iTunes software I installed. After doing some research I was able to resync my ipod without loosing my songs. I have posted the details

    * Close iTunes if running and Goto the iTunes folder
    (My Documents\My Music\iTunes\ on Windows XP)
    * Clear your current iTunes library by deleting iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml
    Note:This step will erase your iTunes library only not your music files :)
    * Now plug in your iPod and it will be detected as a removable media on Windows.
    * Goto My Computer and open the drive
    * If it is empty, goto Tools > Folder Options > And tick Show Hidden Files and Folders Option
    * Copy the iPod_control folder to any drive on your computer.
    * After copying now run iTunes and press erase and resynch.
    * Your iTunes library would be empty so it is okay to resynch.
    * Now unhide the folder you copied over to your drive by right clicking and selecting the properties menu item, and untick the hidden attribute.
    * Drag the folder to your iPod to resynch it.
    * TADA, your iPod is resynched with a new iTunes Library
