Question about Apple iPod nano
I have a problem, why does the "Do Not Disconnect" message appear on my iPod even though all transfers have finished and iTunes has been closed?
There are several things you can try: 1. First and most simple way of solving this common problem is pressing the menu and center button for about 6 seconds. 2. If iTunes is open, close it and see if the message disappears. If it's closed, try to re-open it and click the "eject" icon on the lower right of the screen. 3. Go to My Computer, right click on the iPod icon and select "Eject". If the message still appears, open your Task Manager by clicking Ctrl+Alt+Delete (at the same time) and under the "Processes" tab close and program that looks like it's related to your iPod. 4. If nothing else worked and you've tried all of the above ? just disconnect your iPod. Make sure you've closed all the programs related to it through the Task Manager, as explained above. This has to fix it. Good luck!

It is because of the way a computer connects through USB (assuming you are using a PC, I imagine Macs are the same way, but I don't know for sure). There is information being passed back and forth between your iPod and the computer even when iTunes is not being used. I've never seen any problems with simply disconnecting the iPod in Windows XP or earlier, but if you're using Windows Vista, not ejecting through iTunes has been reported to cause the data to become corrupt on the iPod (even using Windows "Safely Remove Hardware" button). When you need to disconnect your iPod you need to press the eject button from within iTunes. It only takes a few seconds and everything comes out tidy.

This is only a temporary solution. once i reconnect the ipod and select "sync music", the problem resurfaces.
