After formatting my laptop and reinstalling itunes, I was able to get all my music back into itunes from a back-up, but I want my ipod to recognize it's the same itunes account so it doesn't try to erase everything before syncing. how do I fix it so my itunes account is the same? (and yes I logged in with same user ID)

iPod classic

    If all of your music is in your new iTunes library, and your iPod was previously synced to your old iTunes library that had the same music, why dooes it matter?  Everything on the iPod should already be in the new iTunes library.  Just sync it to the new iTunes library like it was synced to the old iTunes library, by setting up the iPod's Music tab in iTunes the same way.
