My ipod won't restore. It keeps coming up with an error message. that says "The iPod '_____' cannot be restored because it contains files that are in use by another application." How do I fix this?

 

The only thing that's open is my itunes, so i don't see how anything on my iPod can be in use by another application.

 

It also does this when I try to eject it, so I end up having to just unplug it instead of ejecting it, which I know is not good.

 

And if it matters, sometimes I plug in my iPod and it doesn't register on either the iPod or in iTunes that my iPod is plugged in, so sometimes I have to re-plug it in. And my iPod these days will continue to say that it's syncing even though iTunes will say it's finished.

 

Please help me!


iPod nano, Windows 7
