    I got an ipod nano and I want to listen to fm radio while its charging.
    I plug it into to a windows pc with no itunes installed.
    If i do "safely remove hardware", it stops charging.
    If I try to eject the removable disk, it complains the disk is in use and cannot be unmounted.

    What else can I try?

    thats annoying when the power point is a bit out of reach.

    also, how do i turn of the screen that saids "connected, eject before disconnecting" while charging?

    If it's connected to a computer - I don't believe you can.

    Is the battery shot that you spend so much time charging it?
