Well, AFAIK you need to unregister it from previous copy of iTunes and register with another one.

I forget how to do the authorizing thing since I don't own one and I only ever did that one time for someone else. I may be mistaken about the amount of authorizations though, and it may be in reverse actually (ipods per computer rather than computers per ipod). I do know that you can mount the thing as a removable storage device by selecting an option within itunes. perhaps you can click/drag them over to it that way. but if they are DRM protected, your ipod will not acquire the license to play them in this manner. thus I hate ipods.

take a look here:

should tell you how to authorize that computer to sync with your ipod.
