Make sure that the account that you originally bought the songs with is logged into the iTunes store. 2nd, I belive that there is a link (you might have to go searching for it) that says Previous Purchases, or Downloads, or something like that in iTunes in the Store.
Hope this helps!!

i had this same scenario. my 60 gb ipod photo would not detect in windows xp either via usb. i'm assuming you have a usb connection and this is my solution based on what you have wrote....... what i did... instead of using a regular usb connector i installed a _fire wire pci card_ and everything is working good now. something in windows xp regarding usb is really annoying!!!! try it
Yes, you are right it will not transfer the songs to from Itunes store to tje Ipod. The new Itunes install does see the Ipod. It does not sync with the Ipod and the new downloaded songs do not transfer themselves to the ipod.
See if this helps.
iPod does not play content purchased from the iTMS.
If there's a recognition problem, see if any of these articles help.
Windows XP cannot detect an iPod.
USB drivers are not installed properly or are out of date.
iTunes 7 doesn't recognize the iPod.
I had the same thing happen to me last night; I figured it out this way. I made new purchases in istore but could not get the songs onto the nano. However, I noticed that when I went into the music library the new songs were there. When I click on them to play them on my computer speakers, itunes told me that the computer was not authorized for my nano, would I like to authorize this computer. I entered my mac id and password into the window, itunes told me that this is the 3rd out of 5 computers that I have authorization for and the upon next sync the music transferred to the ipod. So I do not know at how to just use the menu to authorize using the menu, I'm sure you'll figure out that path.
