Check your USB ports (all of them) to make sure there are no broken ones. Also, check your flash drive on another computer to see if the issue persists. If all the computers you put your memory card into lockup, replace the flash drive.

i have had a similar problem before. if you touch the usb port w/ finger before yopu put in usb device does it still lock up comp. if not there is a grounding problem with port. you computer will not see it ever. check wireing to port and to riser on mother board. or add on pci card.
sounds like a faulty USB driver - i recommend uninstalling all USB drivers and using drivermax.com to get the correct ones. Your computer may have automatically updated your drivers incorrectly without you knowing.
Apple has made it harder and harder to use our ipods over the last upgrade especially. I am running itune 8 on vista home basic and I have the same problem. But since I repair ipods i put numerous ipods on this system and it doesn;t work that great with any of them. although I have found one solution that really has helped with alot of connection issues and ipod crashing in vista. I installed a usb 2.0 card in my computer and only use it for my ipod cable and it has helped. Most of the iPods and iPhones only will connect with a 2.o usb port anymore. So if you have a usb 2.0 use it, if you need drivers get them and reinstall them in your computer to get the fast usb connection. it is still slow in itunes but it's much better.
as for iTunes 8 and why it crashes, well it is an apple product. the don;t care about the ipod, it's a throw away product for them. They want you to buy a new one. But in this day and age, they should give us a break and start making the products so they are user friendly. Thats why Mac has never really exploded. They are too expensive and they don;t support their products. Even the Geniuses at the genius bars in Apple store done know **** about their own products, they just give refubished ****.
Distinct clicking, right? Your hard drive is about to crash completely. Other than the ticking, your problems are probably because the hard drive is not giving out the information it needs to because it can't. You need either a new Hard drive or a new player. once you get it all of you problems should go away.
Ipods and the Kodak printer are both high power devices. There are known issues on common intel motherboards with multiple high power usb devices. You may just have this bad luck, and your motherboad printer ipod combo just wont work at the same time. The best advice I can offer you is to get a High Speed Powerd USB hub. Connect either the IPOD or the printer to the hub and connect the other directly to a USB port on the PC.
uninstall itunes and the ipod software then reload everything it and if u have more then one usb slot make sure u put it back in the one u use to load it with because sometimes the computer is very picky with that. its worked for me when mine does that so maybe it will work for u
