Sync is only oneway, from PC to your device. Unless you have the music on your PC, iTunes is going to wipe out what you have on your device if you are syncing to a new library.
You can only transfer Purchased music over to Itunes on your PC.

As for you own music, you may have to use a third party software to copy over. A good Free one is called Sharepod which you can download from Download.com here:

  • How do i sync my Ipod to my new laptop?

    How do I sync my Ipod w/ my new laptop? It is apparently still registered to my now dead PC. Only some of my music shows up in the laptop library. I would like to have all my music on both the new laptop and Ipod, will not sync, even manually. How do I take care of this, with out having to pay Apple $20.00 for their time? Is it something simple or should I just pay them the $20.00? Desparately seeking an answer.....

    The ipod will sync with one computer at a time.  Syncing to another will erase the current content from the ipod.
    You should copy everything from your old computer, or your backup copy of your old computer, to your new one.
    Then sync

  • How do I sync my ipod to a new laptop if I didn't back up my old laptop?

    I have an ipod that is registered to me. I am trying to sync it with my i-tunes on my current laptop. I wasn't able to back up my last laptop. So how do I sync it so I can add  new songs and manage the ones I already have?

    It is a mix. Some came from I-Tunes and the rest from CD's. I have the I-Tunes songs in my I-Tunes account, but can't sync to add new somgs to my i-pod. I would also like to move all my music to my I-Phone.

  • My laptop died so I've installed itunes onto another PC and my music is all on an external hardive which is connected to the new PC. How can I sync my ipod with the new itunes and get all the music onto itunes?

    You might consider itunes match for moving CDs you've copied into your itunes library if you dont have a way to use home sharing.
    iTunes match is an optional service offered by apple that costs about $25 a year.  It scans your music library and if it finds music that is already in apple's itunes catalog it'll automatically "unlock"/"store" these in the cloud for you.  Items that it does not find in the catalog it'll upload and store these in the cloud for you and you can download them on your devices.  See http://www.apple.com/itunes/itunes-match/

    If the answer to the above question is "yes", FIRST, set up a backup of your new computer before you do anything else so the next time your computer breaks you will not be in the same situation. Backup solutions are numerous and inexpensive, and there is absolutely no excuse in the Third Millennium not to have one.

    Your iPod is designed to sync with only one iTunes library at a time. It will recognize the iTunes library on the Mac as a new library. If you sync the iPod with this new library, all content will be erased from the iPod and replaced with what is in the new library. So what you will want to do is copy everything from the iPod to your new iTunes library on your Mac first.

  • I have just changed my computer as my old one died... but now cannot access my old itunes account so i have set up a new one with another email address. how can I sync my ipod to my new computer without wiping all my music ?

    I have just tried to sync my ipod to a new computer as my old one died but as I cannot remember my previous log in I created a new itunes account. I now want to sync but it says it will wipe my music off my ipod. Does anyone know how I can do this now ?

    If you have purchases on your iPod Shuffle that you want to sync back to iTunes, but are under the Apple ID you no longer have access to, you'll need to reset that account information. You can use this link to reset your password.
    https://iforgot.apple.com/
    If that doesn' work or help, you'll need to contact iTunes support and have them walk you through the process of resetting the older account information.  Once you know the email and password again, you can authorize your new computer and transfer any purchases from this account back to iTunes.
    For all non-iTunes purchased content, you'll need to the assistance of some sort of third party software that is not supported by Apple.

  • How can I sync my iPad with a new laptop (same itunes account) and not lose all my app data, i.e. games data stored on the ipad, not the app itself?

    I want to sync my iPad with a new laptop, so I can get rid of the old computer.  I have already downloaded all the itunes content on the new laptop, but when i go to sync, it tells me that itunes will erase and copy all the apps from the new library.  The 2 computers are on the same account, so is there a way to copy the apps (including app data) onto the new laptop, instead of vice versa?

  • How do i Switch my ipod to me new laptop ?

    I just got a new laptop and i need to switch my i tunes and i pod to sync to the new comuputer does anyone know what i need to do ? Thanks, Scott

    Hi there,
    Well first of you would need to copy all of your content to your new iTunes folder:
    1. Go to your iTunes main folder (C:\Users\Dom\Music\iTunes)
    2. Your main files in which you would want is located in the folder (iTunes Media), this contains your music, films, apps etc.
    3. Copy all the files inside the folder and place them onto a external hard drive.
    4. Then on your new laptop, connect the Harddrive and open iTunes, go to file and add folder to library, find the files in your harddrive and add them.
    if done correctly, all of your content should be in the new iTunes. When you sync the iPod to the new iTunes, it will automatically delete all content on your iPod then you will have to add it all back manually. The reason it does this is because your only suposed to sync with only one iTunes Library, so transfer any purchases to your old iTunes first. Then make a backup of your iPod files, just in case anything happens to your new library as the old library would probably be rendered useless.
    I hope this helps!

  • My old laptop crashed, how do I connect by Ipod to my new laptop without losing current contents of my Ipod?
