here is a website that can help you.
Start with the iPod disconnected from the computer. DON'T CONNECT IPOD YET.
Open iTunes Preferences - this blocks iTunes from seeing an iPod connection; leave the preferences window up and running.
Connect the iPod to the computer, wait about 15 seconds before continuing.
Open 'My Computer'.
Tools menu, Folder Options, View tab, enable 'show hidden files /folders'.
Open iPod icon in My Computer.
Open iPod_Control folder.
You should see a folder named Music.
Drag this folder to somewhere on your computer hard drive.
After the copy completes, right-click the new Music folder on your hard drive and Select 'Properties'.
Clear the checkmark next to 'Hidden'.
Close that explorer window.
Eject iPod from System tray using the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon. This icon looks like a small gray rectangle with a green arrow floating above it. Right-click & select 'Safely remove' then click 'Stop' in the next window, ?OK? in the next window, and then Close to complete the ejection.
Disconnect the iPod from the computer.
Go back to iTunes, cancel the preferences window.
Then go... File menu \ Add folder to Library \ find that Music folder copied over from the iPod. Click add and it will then move all the copied music into your library. You can then delete the copied 'Music Folder'.
All your songs should show up and you're all set!
