So Your iPod Won’t Eject?
You’re updating your iPod in iTunes. It finishes and simply says, “iPod Sync Is Complete.” What? No “OK To Disconnect” message?*
What do you do? You click “Eject.” What happens? A message saying something to the effect that your iPod can’t disconnect because files on your iPod are currently being used. What happens next? You keep clicking “Eject” over and over again, of course. Still nothing. Same result.
Here’s the solution.
Open up “My Computer” (for Vista users, that’s “Computer”) and look for your iPod in the list of drives and removable storage. Right-click on it and click “Eject!” And there you go. Ejected iPod. Don’t believe me? Just go back to iTunes and see that you’ve been ejected.
Read a book.
*As a side note, if you have “Enable Disk Use” checked on your iPod screen in iTunes, you will never get the “OK To Disconnect” message. You will have to manually eject your iPod every time you connect it. And don’t just unplug it. You will screw up files on your iPod if you don’t manually click eject every time before you unplug it.
