ipod question/problem

Posted:
in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Hey everybody. I bought an ipod a few days ago, and I'm having what I call a problem...although it may be normal...you tell me.

Ok, when I plug it into my ibook, it uploads like it should. However, Iget that "Do Not Disconnect" message for what seems like forever. Once the music is uploaded, shouldn't I be able to disconnect the thing? I have to eject it so that I can use it, or I close my ibook, putting it to sleep, and then I can resume my normal ipod functions. I'm going to keep it plugged in all night tonight, and disable the sleep function, and see what happens.

I'm just curious though...is this supposed to happen? Does the message goaway after awhile? Thanks in advance.





Thanks!

    You always have to Eject your iPod. The only one I have noticed that you do not need to click on eject on iTunes is the iPod Touch. I believe it is a "safety" feature to make sure that nothing is being transfered at the time of disconnection. I also believe that it still charges even after you hit disconnect.
