You need to get iTunes str8 before copying from the ipod with third party programs.
In windows goto control panel>add and remove and uninstall iTUnes AND quicktime. Then go here and roll down to the section "Clean up iTunes installer files on the computer" http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93976
Now scan the PC for malware (Malware is a general term for adware and spyware) with your malware scanner or Ewido http://www.ewido.com
Then disable your antivirus/security programs and goto apple.com to download/install iTUnes
Connect the ipod, hit no on the prompt. Now goto edit>prefences>ipod and set the ipod to "Manual update" then goto advanced tab>general sub tab and make sure "Copy files added to library to itunes music folder" is UNCHECKED then hit OK.
Now your ready for third party programs like podutil to copy the songs over In podutil hit "Copy Settings" and check "Add tracks to iTUnes" and "Rebuild playlists"
