About 60% of the time my 2G Nano crashes the first time I try to play a track after I've disconnected it from it's power/sync cable or from the cable that connects it to my Kensington FM car transmitter the Nano crashes. A reset sets things back to normal operation.

Anyone else seen that?

I have not had that particular problem but I have had mine freeze on several occasions.
I think the 2G Nano software is fairly buggy compared to the 1st gen.

edit: I assumed 2G meant 2nd generation not 2 Gig.

Yeah. It's also much slower to eject compared to the first gen one.

Plug it into the computer, make sure it's in the right mode that you can use it as an external hard disk, start up Disk Utility and "Repair Disk" on it. Not many people think of doing this - hard crashes just progressively stuff things up. Beyond that, it's restore time.

yup, my nano crashes about once a week after unplugging it from a resync.
