If it uses a SD card take the card out then put it in a Reader connected to your PC look on the card for the correct folder to drag your files to.

Best way is right click and drag the choose copy hear

Does the Ipod have a Memory Card? if it does take it out and put it in a Memory Card Reader

Click Hear This is a multi Card Reader for different kinds of memory, You then plug it into the USB on your PC it will show as removable drives to which you can drag and drop to, but use the right click on your mouse to drag and drop

To my knowledge no iPod has SD Cards, they all use internal memory. Can you tell use which iPod series you have..??

Until you can get them to work together why not just create a temporary folder to drag files into from the external hard drive. You should then be able to drag them onto your iPod from there. Not the quickest way of doing things but at least it should work.
