Like GM Madman has told you, need first to download itunes which will help you to manage your songs. Go to the link below and download it:

Here are steps to manage your ipod library:

1°) The first thing you want to do is connect your ipod to your computer via the white USB cable.
WARNING: If itunes opens and asks you if you would like to sync up your ipod click NO!

2°) After your ipod is connected, open My Computer, or just Computer from the start menu and look for the ipod drive. It should be in the (F:) drive. You will see the ipod logo in the listing of disk drives.

3°) If you are using Windows vista: Open the ipod drive and click on ORGANIZE. Then folder and search options tab. Then View and Show hidden files and folders.
If you are using Windows XP, open the ipod drive and click tools then Folder options then View tab then click show hidden files and folder. Finally click Apply.

4°) Now you should have a new folder called ipod_control. Open that folder up and you should see the following: Calendar, Contacts, ipod_control, notes, photos, ect. If you are trying to save all of your music then the ipod_control folder is the only one you need to worry about.

5°) Open the ipod_control folder then open the music folder. Copy each one of those folders (should look similar to these: F00, F01 ...) onto your computer.
You can do this by creating a new folder on your desktop and dragging the files into the folder.

6°) Open itunes and insert the new folder you created on your computer's desktop into: library ---> Music

7°)You can now sync your ipod to this new computer with out losing all of your music.

Good Luck!
