    Ok, presuming here that its a Mac rather than a PC, open iTunes, make sure that computer is authorized, then plug in your iPod. When it sees it plugged in, you should get a message that your iPod has song that are not on the computer, would you like to transfer them? You can then put the songs back on the computer.

    That only works for songs purchased from iTunes. What you want is Senuti (http://www.fadingred.com/senuti/90). It's a fantastic app for transferring songs from an iPod to a Mac. It looks great and can even transfer data such as playlists, play count, and everything. I used it when my HD crashed (now thankfully, I have Time Machine)

    EDIT: Oh wow, it used to be free. Balls to that. Oh well, hopefully the trial is fully functional.
