That message just lets you know that your device has been disconnected from the computer by Windows and that you can now safely physically deisconnect it.

I have finished downloading songs from computor to ipod; Ipod reads eject before disconnecting


What Windows OS are you using? From Windows 7 and older versions of Windows, there will be a "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom right corner next to the time. Click on this and choose the IPod. Alternatively, double-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon and choose the IPod under Devices with Removable Storage. Right click on the IPod's icon and choose Eject or left click on the icon and click Eject in the Menu bar of the window.

In Windows 8, you will find these same icons on the desktop screen. There may be a similar option on the Start Screen; however, I'm not positive where that would be.

If you fail to use the Eject feature and remove the device's USB connection to the computer, you risk corrupting the data on the IPod's drive. The computer could still be writing data to the device.

I hope this helps.

Switching off ipod video 80Gb


The "Do Not Disconnect" message will persist until the the iPod is fully charged. Even after this, the message will still persist - it just does this by default. As long as the spinning wheel in the far upper left-hand corner of your iPod screen no longer appears, the sync has been complete - as soon as it is fully charged, safely remove the hardware on your Windows desktop (or use the Eject button in iTunes - or both), and remove the iPod from your PC.

3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware"
4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list
6:scroll down to windows portable devices
7:and choose MTP device
this should make it so your ipod is now recognised by the computer

Safely Removie Hardware


What operating system are you running. If it's XP with SP2 or Vista, then it should be ok, but if it's earlier then you need to update your drivers. Go to the Apple website and go through the 5 r's. It normally sorts most things out.

Apple recommends Windows Vista customers who own an iPod install this software update. For information on how to install this Microsoft hot fix, refer to the "Update your software" section below. Tip: iPod can always be ejected safely by choosing Eject iPod from the Controls menu within iTunes.

Do Not Disconnect message will not disappear


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!
