That's what it means. Music can only be legally transferred from your iPod if you purchased it from the iTunes store. To get the rest of it, you'll need to use a program like SharePod, which will transfer all the music from your iPod, to your computer.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have additional questions regarding the issue.
