Usually you can back up music from iPod to a new computer/iTunes with "Transfer purchases". That requires your apple id.

In your situation, you can try some third party tools for music transference. I recommend iTransfer. It's a Windows based tool for file transference, a tool that helps you transfer music files from iPad to computer hard disk or iTunes without logging in (need assistance from iTunes).

The iTransfer tool is not free but you can get its free trial version.

I've had success with a program called CopyTransManager - it does what iTunes does, but without all the Apple bloat.

I am with Ian in Northampton I like you have very little music on my ipod/Iphone purchased from Itunes,when I say little I mean none. I used to use this But nowadays as I have so much music and if I need to reinstall itunes which will in effect wipe the music from Ipod/Iphone I just fill them again with a fresh selection of tunes.

So...have you solved the problem? I think you can also post a thread and ask on apple support communities.
