I plugged in my friends iPod into my computer today and got a kernal error where it said I had to turn off my computer by holding the power button in. This happened twice before I decided that maybe we should not try it anymore. What's all this about?

Are other devices acting normally using the same port (USB or Firewire)? Quite often a failing hard drive will freeze a Mac but it's less common to get a kernel panic. Usually unplugging the iPod gets things back to normal. Hopefully it's an issue with the iPod and not your computer. :)
