ok heres the deal, i connect my 4thgen ipod to my mac via front firewire. I can transfer songs but after a certain small amount of time, the music transfer to the ipod freezes. If i try to eject using the eject button in itunes the whole mac begins to lock up with the beachball of death. i am forced every time to forcibly unplug the ipod and manually force it to restart. What should i do people! I have already reset the firmware for ipod so dont mention that lol. Also the ipod gets extremely warm!
