I just bought my mini iPod yesterday and everytime i've plugged it into my computer, the computer has frozen. I have Windows XP and it has no problems with it, utill I plug the mini ipod into it to download music.. Has anyone else had this problem?.. :huh:

I'll be returning to the store in a few hours, but it's not an apple specialist store, just JB HiFi.. i received $40 off! :rolleyes:

hm.... on a mac, i'd suggest you try a permissions repair. :P

Try uninstalling itunes, reboot, and reinstall it. Short of deleting apple stuff from the registry, i've got no other suggestions... :/

I hadn't even installed iTunes yet and the computer froze.. I tried installing iTunes and when it asked to configure my iPod, which meant plugging it in, it froze again..

Very annoying.. it took me 2 hours to put mp3 music on my computer, didn't really have much previously, and when I wanted to upload to my mini iPod it just keeps freezing..

oh, and i tried reseting a few times too.. ie holding Menu+Select

It sounds like a windows problem when it does the detecting of the ipod as you plug it in...

Have you tried booting windows with the ipod plugged in?
