Are the actual files gone, or has iTunes just lost track of them? Look inside your \My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music folder -- anything there? If the files are still there, it's just a matter of re-adding them to iTunes (like, by dropping the iTunes Music folder onto the iTunes window).

If the computer's files are gone, then you'll need to get the iPod's files. Read this for the how-to.

So, are your music files still there? (as in my first response)

How are you trying "to add the songs"? Dropping a folder-full of song files onto iTunes window, or using "Import" from File menu, or using "Add" from File menu, or what....
