    Is it possible that you have a different iTunes account for the iPod than the one you use for the iPad?
    Technically, they should still transfer (as far as I know) but might not play. But since I have never owned an iPod, I cannot say for certain.

    So in order to sync your iPod with the new iTunes you'll need to copy the music from your iPod over to your new PC and then erase and sync it.
    For more information on copying content to an iPod manually see this article how to transfer or copy music from iPod to PC.
    Hopefully this works for all of you like it just worked for me!
    Try to reinstall itunes, maybe the driver for your ipod is broken/corrupted.

    Insufficient space on the drive is one thing that can cause that error to appear. So just check it. Anyway otherwise you can use other software to transfer your content instead of iTunes!

    7 month bump? Lol. I think he solved the problem from the looks of it.

    But you can follow these step-by-step guide about how to transfer songs from iPod touch to computer, including the non-purchases songs. It's easy to understand and works pretty well for my iPod.
    For PC:How to transfer music from iPod to iTunes on PC
    For Mac:How to transfer music from iPod to iTunes on Mac
    You erase all the music on the ipod? That would avoid the security routines because the ipod has no music for the initial sync and later, all the music on the ipod came from that one computer.
