    I just plugged in my iPod video to my iBook as usual, but this time, iTunes doesn't open. No idea why.

    iPod says "Do not disconnect." So I wait a long time and still nothing, so I open iTunes. No iPod icon. It doesn't recognize my iPod.

    Finally, after five minutes I have no choice but to unplug my iPod. Of course, I couldln't eject it properly because my computer never even recognized it.

    So I unplug my iPod and it still says "Do not disconnect." It's been about a half hour and it sill says it.

    My iPod is completely blocked and there's nothing I can do about it.

    The worse part is, there is no way to turn this iPod off or reboot it. And since it's the middle of the night where I am, there's no Apple Store helpdesk to call.

    Can anyone help??!!!

    I think the problem was that I plugged it in to my computer (to sync it up) without turning the Hold switch off. From what I've read now, it seems like this is why it froze up on me.
