sync wipe outs all previous music

I recently bought an iPod as a gift for a friend and synched 400+ selected tracks from my library. Before I sent the gift i connected it to my computer to fully charge the battery. An automatic synch was performed and all previous music was erased on the iPod - 400+ tracks were replaced by just 13. What am I doing wrong? Please help if you can. Thanks!

Dunno for sure - do you only have 13 songs in your iTunes Library? You need to know that the iPod can be used, in general, in 2 ways - automatic sync or manually managed.

In auto sync, the iPod will always MIRROR what is in your iTunes Library. It will add songs that are in the Library and will delete songs that are not in your library.

Manually managed is just that - you put on the songs you want, remove those you don't want.

Sounds like your iPod is set to auto-sync. When it is connected to iTunes, you can change it to manually manage music - that sounds like how you want it to be configured.
