I just formatted and installed Leopard. That went just fine however now I have no songs in my iTunes Library. Is it possible to transfer the songs I have on my 30Gb iPod classic back to the Mac? It will be too much pain to bear if I can't.

You will have to use a third party app. Search the boards a bit and you should find it.

Check out the stickies in the iPod and iPhone forum MaDDoG.
There's one there that will help you out.

Now you've learned the hard way: format = delete everything on my hard drive and start over again.
A lot of us learned it the hard way...

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

In order to use Senuti with an iPod, disk use must be enabled, and manual management of songs should also be enabled. If disk use is not enabled, follow these instructions to enable it:

Preparing your iPod read carefully
  • If connected, disconnect your iPod
  • Launch iTunes
  • Press and hold the Command and Option keys*
  • Plug in your iPod with the keys still pressed
  • When your iPod appears in the source list of iTunes, you can release the keys
  • Within iTunes click on your iPod
  • Choose the settings tab to alter the settings of your iPod
  • Enable Disk Use
  • Enable Manually manage music and videos**
  • Press Apply
*Holding the Command and Option keys will stop iTunes from automatically updating your iPod when you connect it

**Enabling the preference to manually manage your music will make it so you no longer have to remember to press and hold the Command and Option keys when plugging in your iPod. It is strongly recommended that you enable this feature so that iTunes never deletes the music on your iPod without prompting you.

Copying songs to your computer

To copy songs back to your computer, all you have to do is select the songs and click the transfer button in the toolbar of the application.

The songs will be copied to the your hard drive, and if you set Senuti up so that songs are automatically added to iTunes, then they will be added to iTunes as well.

Funny thing, I don't know if the website still says it, but it used to say that Senuti got it's name with the phrase "Everything in reverse" and they wanted a name so decided to to iTunes backwards, cause essentially, that's what Senuti is. lol. So yeah, glad I could be of help.
