I have reached my maximum knowledge level for the iPod in terms of troubleshooting this issue. I have rest the iPod manually through the track-wheel and restored the iPod through iTunes. I continue to get the above screen after the iPod is done syncing. The only way it goes away is when I eject the iPod. Is there a reason this is happening and how would you go about resolving it? Oh yeah, I almost forgot. It is a 30GB 5th Generation video iPod.
