My iTunes won't sync my music to my iPod Touch 4G. Please Help!!!

I had all of my music on another computer and when it broke, i got a laptop. When i downloaded iTunes on my new laptop, i made sure it was authorized to the computer and i got new songs put into my library. I was hoping to replace the songs on my iPod with the songs in my library.Then, when i pressed "sync" nothing happened. It didn't even erase the songs on my iPod. I'm confused, so please help me!

In order for iTunes to sync music to iPod touch 4G it needs to be set up properly. To do this, Plug in iPod to the computer, go to tab under "devices" in iTunes and scroll to options and make sure they are set. Click on the "music" tab at the top of the sync screen and verify "sync music". After you ensure music library is what you want it to be, hit "sync: in the lower right hand corner.

Seeing this is 11 months ago I've recently found a solution.
-First, go to edit in iTunes and click edit. Select Preferences and select the tab that says Devices. Check the first box that says "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically" Select OK.
-Now, plug your sync adapter to your iPod and your computer.
-Now, go to Help then select Run Diagnostics... Uncheck the first two boxes and ONLY CHECK "Device connectivity tests" and "Device sync tests"
-Then, Click Next, and then Click Next again until you come across the dialogue box that says "All tests passed" IF it doesn't say this for the "Device connectivity test" instead it finds and error connecting your iPod, JUST Click Next same as you would if it did say "All tests passed"
-Within "Device sync tests a command prompt or window will appear. You will know this because the background will be black and the letters white. DO NOT BE AFRAID THIS IS NORMAL.
-Afterwards, Click Next and iTunes will show a list of diagnostic information performed and altered.
I hope I helped! :)

if it's a hardware and not a software problem, Try to fix it yourself first. Search model plus "repair guide" on any search enginge. For the part, there are websites that sell all the replacement parts, one of the bigger ones is http://portatronics.com. Do it yourself, or better ask a friend who has done a similar repair before.

GazerBeam words is right, i took all afternoon yesterday to fix the problem. That's terrible.

Personally i would like third party tool to assist me, so that we don't waste much time and power on it. http://goo.gl/jWYU5m It's freeware, i love freebie. And it could transfer music cross PC, iTunes, Decives.
