    Why does my ipod video freeze every time I connect it to my macbook pro to sync? I always have to do one of those center button+menu resets. and yet still the computer takes a good 5 minutes just to recognize its connected when the ipod says do not disconnect from the second it is plugged in...

    I get this sometimes,

    First, did you have anything previously connected to that USB port e.g. mouse, keyboard... if so after you unplug it give it a few seconds before you plug in your ipod. I'm not even sure if it's a cause, but I do notice that my ipod will sometimes freeze in this instance.

    second, the ipod video will go into a standby mode when it hasn't been used for a short while. Before you plug it in, press one of the buttons to wake it up, the apple logo will show for a second or two until the menu shows, then plug it in to your mac.
