    Hi I went out and bought an iPod nano (2G, 8GB) when I plugged it in to the computer it started syncing then threw up an error message, something like: 'iPod cannot be written to or read from' - the only option is OK. After pressing OK it threw up another error message (error -50) does anyone know why this is happening (I had an iPod mini before an it had been working with no problems for the last 18 months - I last updated it about 20hrs before I got the new nano) Also once I have clicked through the error messages I find that when I sync again it will work fine for the rest of the sync - however it then automaticly disconnects itself and then when I click eject in iTunes it says that it cannot be disconnected due to it (the iPod) being used by another programme. Any ideas appreciated.

    PS: I will upload screen shots if needed :)
