Talking will i lose my music if i synch with my new pc?

I have a 4th gen ipod shuffle and have my complete library of music stored on it. My old pc died and now i have bought a new one and downloaded itunes . Obviously my library was empty although i retrieved music i had bought from the itunes store. What i wanted to know is , if i sync my ipod on the new pc will all the other music be wiped off, meaning i would have to reload my ipod by laboriously downloading each dic of my cd collection, or would it all automatically transfer over to the library in the new pc? I apologise if this is a dumb question but i am an old dinosaur and would appreciate help from a more clued up user please!

Yeah you will, so don't sync new pc, unless your ipod is jailbroken. you can use a program to take out the music for you?

I have this same question, except my problem comes from having Lion crash my iTunes stored on an external drive--I lost all of the music on the drive, and *don't* want to lose the music on my iPod, too. I know there are hacks and ways to jailbreak the iPod--is there a way legitimately endorsed by Apple that anyone knows? Or what's the best recommended hack?
