New computer soon -don't want to lose my music

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Is there a simple way of putting my Ipod music onto another machine so I can start again after a serious hardware failure.

I say simple as I don't want to ruin what's on the Ipod by making a mistake in any transfer activity.

Then hopefully I can carry on as before, as if it never happened.

I think I may lose some stuff downloaded from I-Tunes store; I can live with that.

I cannot see anything in the manual and a search here has not helped. Not able to formulate the correct query perhaps.

    PC or Mac? You mustn't have Googled this?

    It is a PC.

    And thank you I will investigate. Sometime ago I lost someinformation by doing what I thought was correct, so I take no chances now.
