And welcome to Apple Discussions!
Are you running any sort of antivirus software on your system? If so, make sure it is set not to scan your iPod from within the AV software's settings. How you do that depends on what kind of AV software you have installed and running. Or you can try and temporarily disable it and then try ejecting your iPod to see if that helps. If it does, you know where the problem lies.
Hmm. Do you have the *Enable Disk Use* option enabled from under your iPod's Summary tab in iTunes? If so, try disabling it to see if that does any good.
Or if applicable, locate your iPod from within "My Computer" (or Computer), right->click on it and choose "Eject."
Others have had luck by simply playing a song in their iTunes library for a little while and then reattempting to eject their iPod via iTunes.
Hi! I just got a new iPod Nano 5th Gen to replace my previous Nano (not sure what that one was but about 4 yrs old). Anyway, I was getting the same error message and after restarting PC, etc, I finally searched and found this disc. topic. I am happy to report that the last suggestion below about finding the device in My Computer and right clicking to eject worked! Thank you so much! I did see that the "enable disk use" in the summary tab is selected but grayed out so I was unable to deselect.
My next question is, is there any way to fix this so that I don't have to go to My Computer to eject? If not, at least now I know that I can safely eject that way.
