The gray songs are on the old computer. The iPod knows about them but can't find them. You need to move the grey songs to the new computer. What type of computers do you have?

If you know how, just move them. If running Macs hook the old one up via firewire cable and start holding the "T" key down. The old machines hard drive will now show up on the desktop of the new computer. Open itunes and add the music from the old computer to the iTunes library. Hook up you iPod and all should be well.
