CompExpert :

unfortunately, the new ipod devices required the latest itunes software to sync because latest itunes have driver support your new ipod classic.

new itunes required faster computer and the latest osx operating system.

there are no workaround method for it.

you have to buy a new computer or find another computer in your house and install itunes in there.
