Default iPod help for a cabbage

Had my ipod stolen and have just got around to getting another. The thing is, in the meantime I have bought a new laptop. I want to put all the songs I have on the old laptop onto my iPod (which I can do) but ideally I want to use itunes on the new laptop.

How do I get all the songs from the old laptop to the new one? Can I do it via the actual iPod or do I need to start burning loads of disks to bring the songs over that way?

Many thanks.

Actually I think it might. How can I tell?

If you can get hold of a pen drive with say 1GB memory it'll make life easier.

Mind you, if I have, I only have it on nthe new laptop anyway.

Not sure if it makes sense but I've found this:

Set your iPod to be a removable hard disk and copy your music to another computer
Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes.
Select iPod in the iTunes Source list.
Click the iPod Options button in the lower-right corner of the iTunes window.
Click the "Enable disk use" checkbox, and then click OK.
On a Windows computer, find your iPod listed as a drive in "My Computer." On a Mac, find your iPod in a Finder window.
You might want to create a folder named "Music" on your iPod to make it easier to find your files later.
Drag songs from your iTunes Library to the "Music" folder you just created.
When you’re done copying songs, eject the iPod, and then connect it to the new computer.
Now find your iPod listed as a drive in "My Computer" (on a Mac, find your iPod from a Finder window), and drag the "Music" folder to your iTunes Library.


Worth a try?

That may help:

Once you've transferred them, you may also need to deauthorize the old PC and authorize the new one to play music purchased from the iTunes Music Store
I've decided to use my old laptop just for itunes. f*** it.
