THe basic idea is that instead of formatting the iPod for the new computer, you sync the new computer with the old iPod.

Apple has a web page that describes the whole process. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1329

Can you clarify a little more? If I sync my ipod to my new computer, it will erase everything (or at best, XXXXX XXXXX the music from my ipod that I purchased through my itunes account on my old computer). I also have music on my new computer (through iTunes). I consolidated that music though so I wouldn't lose it.
My objective is to use my ipod as an eternal hard drive...I want to transfer all my music and my photos. Is there a way to do this in it's entirety? I have already spent an hour on the itunes/mac website and it said for me to "enable disk" . When I tried, it kept giving me the prompts (like normal) to either erase or transfer. Can you help again?

It will be easier for you if you use a program such as iPodRip; http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/199894
Just download that program and it will do what you want to do.
