iPod New Computer synching, and shuffling

Hi, I have 20GB iPod. I just bought a new computer. Even if I deauthorize my old computer, I can't seem to put my "free tuesday" iTMS songs on my iPod. Does anyone know why?

Also, on another note, I was wondering if there's an easy way to shuffle a preset or a manually made playlist.

Thanks for your help!

Sorry, still no iTMS here so I can't help with that, but what do you mean by shuffling a playlist? I've got my iPod set to automatically shuffle by songs which means if I select a playlist, it'll play songs randomly throughout that playlist. :)

Are you talking about shuffling the songs on the iPod or in iTunes? On the iPod, go to setting, then shuffle and select what way you want it to work. In iTunes, the easiest way is to click on the shuffle button in the bottom left corner (or under Controls at the top of the screen, or hold done the mouse button over the iTunes icon in the dock).
