    Go to the music tab on the device thingy. Check the box to sync music, the erase and sync message box will pop up

    The only reason for the erase and sync box to come up is if the iPod is synced to a different iTunes library. If the box is already checked and its not coming up, that means that the iPod is already synced to the library on your computer.

    If this is the case, make sure that 'all music' is the option chosen on that tab as well, it may not be syncing because you have it set up to sync specific playlists and there is nothing to update.

    As for apt-backup, I've used it once and I'm by no means an expert. You might want to search this forum or check youtube for a tutorial on it
