    The problem is your video either isnt in the right format for the ipod or there is some type of protection on it. (your not trying to use the music videos from aol are you)
    Its fine to press the eject button in iTunes to disconnect the ipod.

    To put album art on the iPod just go to get info and paste the picture when it says album art or just drag the album art into the album art box in the lower left of iTunes

    no it's not fine, if you have it drive enabled. eject it from the Finder or My Computer first.

    Actually, it IS fine, whether you eject it from iTunes, Finder, or My Computer doesn't make a single difference.

    Furthermore, you will probably find that you'll have to eject your iPod manually whenever you've finished using it if you have it 'enabled for disk use'. Otherwise, it should eject automatically each time iTunes has finished syncronising your music.

    This setting can be changed in 'preferences', under 'ipod'.
