Sync Music from iPod to iTunes

I have a new computer and I want to import my music off my iPod onto my iTunes. I have already set it up to not sync automatically and I have transferred my purchased music. My computer won't show me any of the files on my iPod so how do I get them into iTunes? Do I have to load all of them again? My previous computer didn't have Cloud so my iPod is my backup.

iTunes works well in syncing purchased music on your iPod to iTunes. As for the other music contents, you have to look for other solutions. If you're still scratching your head about this, you can have my recommendation here. Try Wondershare TunesGo Retro (Windows) or Wondershare TunesGo Retro (Mac). This iPod to itunes music transfer tool lets you sync music from iPod to iTunes seamlessly.
