What happens when you try to sync?
Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
Do the songs play in iTunes?
Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?
The itunes link suggests that I remove SC info folder. I dont have instructions on how to do this. I am working with windows 8
When I try to sync it gets to step 5 then asks me to authorize the computer
The ipod is synced to another computer but with the same itunes account
I have had it successfully synced before the update
The songs play in itunes
The ipod sucessfully syncs with the other computer. ( my work computer) the issue is at home.
I am submiting this info before checking the second link you provided as it wont save what I have written
Thank you. My next question is this: While trying to solve this issue, I deauthorizated all comptuers/devices and then only had the one (home computer) and it still gave me the error on syncing; to authorize the computer. It was authorized, and I logged out and back and also refreshed. It was the only computer active at that time. Should it have not taken over as the only synced computer?
