    The question was directed at you, because the answer you give affects what the correct answer is back.

    iPods generally (including the iPod Touch) don't sync music back to a computer (with the exception of music purchased on the iPod Touch). The sync is generally one-way, from iTunes TO the mobile device. This is an anti-piracy thing.

    Since you've never synced your iPod Touch to the MBP, of course it doesn't recognize that music as being yours (since its tied to your previous machine). There are some third-party programs that can move the music "back" from your iPod to your new iTunes; I recommend Phone to Mac ($25).

    You're welcome. Glad you liked iRip, it's worth the $19.95. Have fun and visit often.
