The machine I used to sync my iPod classic to recently died an untimely death. Fortunately I had a backup of my music library and restored that to a replacement computer which I have authorized thorough iTunes (same operating system and same version of iTunes). I took a bit of time to clean up my iTunes library and also got some new downloads (from Amazon) which have been added to my library. When I connect my iPod it appears in iTunes and says it's syncing but it doesn't download any of the new music or clean up any of the stuff I deleted from iTunes. It just shows that it's syncing for a few seconds and then says "OK to disconnect". I've moved between computers in the past and never has this sort of problem. Anyone got any ideas?

I would first try to perform a reset on the iPod:
To reset your iPod: 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again) 2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
If you're still having problems, after that I would try a restore to defaults:
