OK, first, and yes I searched and can't find, how to copy the music off of my Ipod to a directory and copy back to a new Itunes install. Now with that being said, there was a thread already on it and I can't find the it! D'oH! I did print it out though, so I was able to do it. Second, the method worked, however, I have NO idea where the video files reside on the Ipod. Much thanks for your help and patience.
