    hey there!

    my sister has just came in with her mini, itunes (pc) would not eject the ipod and neither would the remove hardware wizard.

    as a consequence it is stuck on the 'do not disconnect' screen!

    any ideas?

    is theres a reset combination or anything?

    cheers
    Rowan

    You can reset the mini by toggling the hold button on/off then hold menu and 'enter' in for like four or five seconds.

    Edit: menu, not play... :eek:

    Didn't the mini restart? Not too strange, as I think I gave you wrong directions... :eek:

    You should toggle the hold button from open to hold and back (like I said above), then hold the enter (middle) and the menu "button" in for 4 or 5 seconds... (The screen should go blank for a little while, than show the Apple logo for a while, then come up again with your default menu).

    Sorry about that... :eek:
