Make sure you are looking at your library, and not your ipods library. If you are looking at your ipod's library you wont be able to change view.

Ok I have my music and I can only view it in itunes when my Ipod is plugged into my computer...so your saying it needs to be in the "music" section under "library" is there anyway to transfer the songs over from the section "music" under the "devices" section the music section under the library section..i have about 560 songs on there

So what you are saying is that your music is only on your iPod it is not also on your computer.

There are several apps that will pull music off your ipod and put it on your computer

Well if they are on your computer just use the Add to Library option to add them to your iTunes Library
