I recently had a comupter crash due to a virus. The hard drive also burnt during recovery. Because the hard drive is burnt, it would be expensive to have a specialist recover the data; for this reason we decided just to get a new computer and start from scratch. However, the only place my music really exists now is my iPod nano. On my new laptop, when syncing my iPod in iTunes, a message popped-up asking if I would like to replace the music on my nano with my (empty) iTunes library or add the new computer to a list of computers my nano could sync with. I selected this option, but it still pops up with the same message every time I sync it. I have now acquired new music in my iTunes library that I have no way of syncing onto my nano because it seems that it would erase the music I currently have on it. Is there anyway to import the songs from my nano to iTunes and recreate the library I had on my other computer, but with the new songs I've purchased.


Let me know if I've failed to mention details-- I felt like I went all over the place with that explanation.
