How to Rescue Music from iPod to PC?

“Hi, my dad's computer crashed and it had to be wiped and reinstalled with Windows OS. There was no backup done for music and other files. I have reinstalled iTunes and I was trying to sync his iPod back up. But message appears asking to erase all the data on iPod and sync with the iTunes library. iTunes library is empty, which I believe means it will erase the music on the iPod making this empty also? It recognizes that this is a new library even though it is the same computer. I tried the option for transferring purchases but this didn't pull anything through. If I erase the files preset in iPod can they be recovered? Many thanks.”
