    I was transfering an mp3 from my computer at work to my computer at home. I used my ipod as an external hard drive and just dragged the file onto it. No whenever I try to drag the file off of my ipod it starts copying onto the computer and freezes about 2/3 of the way through. I click stop and nothing happens. It just sits there. If I try to forcefully restart the finder it doesn't worked. None of the other applications seem affected but the finder sits frozen. The mp3 file plays fine when I play it from my work computer and when i play it from the ipod on my home computer. But the moment I try dragging the file to either desktop it freezes the finder. Any thoughts?
