Putting something in a folder on the iPod as it appears on your computer is not the same as adding it to iTunes.
It won't appear on the iPod itself.
You must instead sync these things using iTunes.
You can do that with the Contacts tab of your iPod in iTunes.
I'm not sure if you can add notes with iTunes, but they won't appear on the iPod if you just drag and drop.
Actually, I've successfully dragged over contacts (once they're converted to the right format) and notes in the past since the iPod is in Disk Mode. However, they only appear when they feel like it. A visit to a Genius Bar revealed that this problem does not occur when the iPod is formatted for Macintosh (HFS+) instead of Windows (FAT32). Yet, the computer with my music library is Windows, so the iPod must be in the Windows format.
However, once I noticed that iTunes supported taking from my Windows Contacts folder, I set that up too and it still doesn't show up, even though iTunes says it's copying the contacts over and "Optimizing contacts with photos"
