I have a regular 4th generation 120GB standard ipod.  I recently got a new computer.

Here are my issues:
1.) My ipod is not currently associated with any PC and I have all these playlists on the ipod that I do not want to lose.  My fear is that as soon as I plug it into the PC, it will synch and wipe out all my playlists/music.  Is this the case ?  If so how do i prevent this?

2.) I have put a lot of effort into these playlists and they are quite long.  How can I back them up?     I just want to backup the list or even print off the list so I recreate it if need be.  I do not need to back the mp3 itself, I already have a solution in place for that.

Thanks for helping an old non tech savvy dude.
