use ur ipod as a memory stick type thing and go into it on my computer, then copy and paste your apps etc onto your computer :)

    Okay, there are two things you can do. If you downloaded them from limewire or a cd, you are going to need to burn a cd (or use some other kind of information saving technology) and transfer them over through your new computer. If you bought the songs from itunes, you need to plug it in to the computer (say no to the syncing process), click file in the top left corner, and scroll down to an option that says transfer purchases from ipod. The apps should transfer as well when you click this button.

    set the ipod to manually manage music and apps etc. IDK if that will work tho since your original computer crashed.

    The most convenient and secure way is to use an iPod-to-computer transfer program to help you, like this handy one called Tansee iPod Transfer
    http://www.gutensoft.com/Utilities/Tansee-iPod-Transfer.htm
    Many of my friends are using it for its easy and safe transfer. The whole process goes as follows:

    Firstly install this program on your computer. When you plug your iPod Touch to the computer, this program will instantly display all songs and videos on the iPod.You simply select what you wish to transfer and click “Copy” button. Done. All your selected files will be copied to your computer safely. Now you can easily add those songs and videos to your iTunes library. See detailed guide.
    More importantly, this won’t overwrite any original files on your iPod. And all song names are preserved.

    Here is step-by-step guide on the whole process:
