If You've purchased music from the iTunes store, go here:

Go to the bottom of the page, Click Contact Us

Tell them your problem. they'll contact you and you may be able to re-download those missing files.

If there is music on your iPod that doesn't appear in your library:

Go To My Computer

Make sure hidden folders are shown by going to Tools > Folder Options > Hidden Files and Folders > Show Hidden Files and Folders > OK

Double click your iPod

Click on a folder named iPod_Control

Click on a folder named Music

Highlight and drag the music folders into your iTunes Library.

Note: This might not work if you synced your iPod with iTunes,
