Hello,
My daughter who is 11 had her ipod nano (4GB) plugged in to my computer. We were leaving the house so she shut off my computer for me but forgot that she had her ipod still connected. The problem now is my computer does not recognize the her ipod is connected and the ipod won't work at all. The face of the screen says: Connected Eject befor disconnecting. the problem is she can't eject because my computer doesn't even recoginize that anything is plugged into the USB port. there is nothing wrong with the cable because it does recognize my 13 yr old's ipod. Help!! What can I do to fix this child's ipod?

I GOT MINE TO UNFREEZE BY:
toggling the hold switch on and off then hold the menu and the centre button for 6 second until an apple logo appears and ur songs should all be still their

After a good few hours of googling and sweating that I'd cirrupted my disc, I've just done this and it works again!

Mega-ultra-karma-points for you!

None of these solutions is working for me. Apple I-pods are great when they work they really shouldn't still be so technically primitive that they crash repeatedly like this!
