    I just bought a new iPod nano. I'm doing all the syncing with my MacBook, but was wondering if there was a way I can charge it using my PC. It's formatted for Macintosh and right now, whenever I plug it in, the error message keeps popping up. It's not that big of a problem, just an annoyance.

    I don't think I'll be charging it this way that much, but, when I need the extra desk space and need to charge it then, I'd like it to be perfect.

    I guess that's what I get for using a PC, huh??

    I charge my iPod on a Windows computer without syncing it. To accomplish this, I just disabled the iPod service from running when Windows starts.

    I did that and my iPod says do not disconnect. How do I disconnect it when it's charged up??

    There should be a "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in your taskbar. You can also eject the iPod from My Computer.

    Another alternative is to plug your USB cable into a USB charger or a powered usb hub, when it is not connected to a computer.
