Ahh, if you want to copy the playlists as well as the music, then I
think Patrick's suggestion may be simplest.  You should even be able
to connect both ipods at once, and then drag the playlists from one
ipod to the other.

I'd guess that some of those playlists are what are known as "Smart
Playlists."  You won't get what you want if you simply copy the files
currently in them.  A smart playlist is really a query.  The playlist
is updated dynamically.  Top rated might be "all tracks that are rated
4 or better."  When you rate new tracks or change the ratings of
existing tracks, the playlist contents are updated automatically.

Using the drag and drop method should preserve the smart playlists
