Protect your tech investment by safely disconnecting your iPod after syncing it with your PC or Mac.

Step 1: Eject in iTunes
Select your iPod’s name under Devices in the left- hand column of iTunes. Then click on the Eject icon next to the device name, which looks like an up arrow with a line underneath.

Click on Controls in the menu bar in iTunes and select Eject.

Step 2: Eject in Mac
Eject your device from the desktop on a Mac by choosing Finder from the dock and selecting your iPod from the list. Then click the top File menu and then Eject iPod.

Use the shortcut keys Command and E, pressed at the same time.

Step 3: Eject from a PC
Eject your iPod from your PC’s desktop by selecting Start from the lower left task bar. Then select My Computer, right-click on the iPod drive, and select Eject from the pop-up menu.

Step 4: Simply unplug
Simply unplug your iPod if the display reads Charging or OK to disconnect, or if the iPod shuffle shows a solid amber or green color.

Step 5: Use last resort
Listen or feel to find out if the iPod’s hard drive is spinning. If it’s not, unplug it from the computer and reset the iPod, which will save all data. Use this last resort if the iPod still reads Do not disconnect after trying all other methods.

Did You Know?
Did you know? When President Obama visited Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, he gave her an iPod filled with music.
