If you’re able to see the playlists on the iPod while it’s connected to iTunes, you should be able to rt-click on the playlist and choose to export. The default file type is .txt but you can change it to one of the other options. Text file works for me.
Name the file anything you want and save it where you can find it. Then to get you playlist back into iTunes, go to File>Library>Import Playlist and nav to your saved playlist file.
The playlist should appear in your list of playlists.
