Welcome to Apple Discussions.
You could have closed iTunes, shutdown your computer and disconnect the iPod, although that will be inconvenient. Is your antivirus software scanning the iPod by any chance?
Occasionally I also receive this unable to eject message, though not with my iPods but with my card reader and external hard drives. I just reboot and disconnect them. Sometimes by accessing the card and the hard drive (writing and deleting files) and I was able to eject them. Quite weird.
Thanks for the feedback.
I have checked all of the running applications and none of them are accessing the iPod. I have not experienced any issues with this problem, as of the moment. Well, aside from the annoying warning from Windows whenever I "improperly" disconnect my iPod.
I just wish that Apple would be able to look at this problem and hopefully they would be able to duplicate the problem at their end.
I have the same problem but i think i have a solution. instead of using itunes or the windows eject button on the taskbar, i go into my computer and select to eject the removable drive that pertains to my ipod. this makes the do not disconnect screen disapear and my menu shows up, giving me, what i tihnk, is the sign to unplug.
