My iPOD keeps saying "Do Not Disconnect" while charging. I can't listen to anything.

The simplest answer is because the iPOD software detects that it is unsafe (read: data loss) for your iPOD, Computer or both if you were to disconnect the cable without ejecting the device first.

Here's what to do:

On the Mac--

  1. Click on the Finder icon
  2. Pick the iPOD icon.
  3. Navigate to the File menu--select Eject iPOD

On a Windows OpSys device--

  1. On the Start menu, click Computer (e.g. Windows 7).
  2. Right-click on the drive/device letter or iPOD icon (read: the icon doesn't always appear)
  3. Select Eject.

The message should go away while you're still plugged in. You should be able to charge and listen at the same time! :)
