    The only thing you can do is manually manage music. If you sync, it will erase everything first, because syncing music files from multiple computers is not allowed.

    Manually managing music means you have to drag and drop from within iTunes any time you want to put music on it. There's a checkbox in the summary screen to enable that, then you click Apply. Click and drag a playlist from the sidebar up to the iPod to add it, click and drag a song from the library to the iPod to add just a song. To delete a song or playlist, you can delete it from the iPod music app itself (swipe across it in the list of playlists or songs, tap Delete). To delete it from the iPod using iTunes, first get to the iPod Music window in the sidebar. The main window should then have the list of songs that are on it, and the toolbar at the bottom will have options like Autofill and Settings. Select the songs to delete, and then hit Delete (or Edit -> Delete, or right-click and delete).

    Sounds like a software update gone wrong.

    Try holding in the power button for about 5 seconds and see if it turns back on. Should see the Apple logo for a couple minutes, then maybe a little progress bar, and it should come back on some time after that.

    If it shows the Apple logo and then just shuts back off, keep trying to turn it back on. I've seen a phone take a couple of tries to get it to finally start up.

    Also, make sure it's on the charger - if it has low battery while it's trying to update the software, it can possibly turn into a brick.
