    I have a Mac and a PC at home but due to work, I have to leave the PC up 99% of the time until I can afford to get another monitor to run my Mac at the same time.

    Anyway, I bought my first iPod last night (Shuffle) and got it going in no time on my XP machine.

    However, the annoying problem is that XP keeps popping up the Windows Explorer window every time I put in my iPod. Plus, every time I add/remove a song from the iPod, Windows KEEPS opening and closing the explorer window. I went into the iPod drive properties and told it to "Take no action" but it still does it.

    Any clues?

    This happened to me when I had a windows machine. I ended up restoring the ipod, that helped for a while, when it came back I reinstalled XP and took off service pack 2.
