The thing that you are trying to accomplish is what I see alot of folks on these discussion groups doing... They move files into the iPod and think of it as a external drive and then want to transfer the files in and out of the iPod...
It's not that easy, as the iPod also has an internal index of the songs and contents (such as playlists). The only way to get them on the iPod is through iTunes...
From my perspective, all that I can do is highly recommend that you leave all of your music in iTunes and than manually manage the music that goes onto the device. You can not move selected songs from one device to another... As that could technically violate the copyrights on the iPod (especially if they are downloaded and belong to another user).
Any other tools other than iTunes which allow you to do this, run your own risk of issues or violations to the apply copyright and usage agreements.
Though not the answer you want, this is about the only news and help that I can offer you.
