What kind of computer do you have? There are a number of different ones for Windoze. I haven't tried it in a while. Linux has some pretty good support by now for doing that, try gtkPod. For the mac, last I tried was a program called Double Helix and it sucked ass (maybe it is better now).
Looks like iPodUtil is for Windoze. Looks like it's free too so you could try that. Cool thing about the new MS Zune is that you can share music wirelessly between Zunes. I still wouldn't trade my iPod mini though.

Of course, if you are any good at *nix, you might not even need any program.

Supposedly you don't need a program in windows either. You just need to view the hidden file folders.
