My Ipod Nano apears o be stuck on the "OK to Disconnect" screen.
I am able to charge it through USB and an AC adaptor (that I have from another iPod) but unfortunately it will not let me actually play any songs.
Any idea how to remove the OK to Disconnect screen or just reboot the whole thing?

Once the iPod is attached to the iPod and USB port in the computer, an icon will appear at the bottom of the computer desktop. The icon is from removing the USB Mass Storage Device
Now, click on the enject icon and it will show which drive the USB cord is attached to. Once the icon is clicked on, the iPod will show an arrow going down and reading "OK to disconnect". Once able to disconnect, the USB cord can be removed from iPod.
Another way to eject the iPod from USB cord is through iTunes. Once anything you want sync'd to your iPod is complete, a message will appear on the iPod reading, "OK to disconnect". Just like it did on the ejecting icon on your desktop.
I had a temp problem like this too! I found that by purchasing the plug adaptor, it got around to charging the battery on the iPod eventually. Check that the points of the USB cord at either ends haven't been bent or are at least clean.
You need to reset your ipod. Flip the hold switch on then off, then press select button and menu button at same time. Hold for 10 seconds or so. Ipod should shut off and reboot to apple screen. If this doesn't work first time try again. This should solve any stuck screen problems. Mine was stuck on pioneer screen and this operation fixed it.

In order to get an Ipod to work on your computer never plug it into a USB hub. The hub does something to the power of the device that causes it to not perform, be recognized, or charge. Find a spare USB port to plug it in and see if it will find it.
USB hubs do not work on external hard drive devices. Jump drives will work on a hub
