i tune help please

Hi i switched on my i tunes yesterday as was going to put more songs on my i pod classic and the library now empty ! Looked in my music but nothing there so dont know what ive done , devastated. I ve had i pod a year so got lots of songs on but also have a lot of space left as well. Am i right in that if i plug my i pod in now it will wipe all my songs off ? if so it looks like i cant put any more songs on again which is a waste. Im not a spring chicken so dont understand a lot with computers but if anyone can help in easy to understand answers would much appriciate it lol. Tried to find answer by google and something came up with buying isync ? not sure about that either.

Do NOT plug your iPod in.

as you will lose what music is on the iPod.

iRip is not free but it does have a trial period where it will only move a certain number of tracks.

iRip can be found here:
