How do i move ipod nano content to a new Windows computer?  My old computer died and when i try to sync to itunes on my new Windows computer, it says it will erase what's on the ipod.  I can't seem to de-authorize the old computer (it's been recycled).

Hi, I'm an ipod newbie, and unsure of what product i have-i believe it's an ipod nano, but can't seem to find any info on itunes that will identify my product.
how do i move ipod nano music to a new Windows 7 computer?  My old computer died and when i try to sync to itunes on my new Windows computer, it says it will erase what's on the ipod.  I can't seem to de-authorize the old computer (it's been recycled).  Does this mean I have to start all over and read in my CD's into itunes?  seems very inflexible/inelegant...
thanks for your help, sorry if this question has already been answered before!
