When you plug your friends iPod into your computer and directly click sync, it will probably erase all music on your friends iPod and replace with the content of your own iTunes library.

So to download songs from your friend's iPod without deleting any files either on your iTunes or your friends iPod, all you need is to use this handy iPod transfer program called Tansee iPod Transfer to help you. Many of my friends are using it for its easy and safe transfer. The whole process goes as follows:

Firstly install this program on your computer. When you plug your iPod to the computer, this program will instantly display all songs and videos on the iPod.You simply select what you wish to transfer and click "Copy" button. Done. All your selected files will be copied to your computer completely and safely. Now you can easily add those songs and videos to your iTunes library.
More importantly, this won't overwrite any original files on your friend's iPod or your iTunes. And all song titles are preserved.

It even has step-by-step guide on the whole process.

Hope this can help.
