    So for the old ipods, it says, do not disconnect when its connected to the computer right? Well the touch doesnt say that, so does that mean we dont need to press eject?

    so long as it doesnt say "sync in progress" "slide to cancel" you can unplug whenever you please.

    you dont have to eject it. i saw a video on gizmodo that shows it being disconnected manually and there are no problems whatsoever

    there is never a problem (usually), the only time there's a problem is when its still writing info to the drive, but if its not, almost every single disk does NOT have to be ejected.

    Cheers,
    Ben.

    I think the reason you don't need to worry about ejecting the Touch is because it does not operate in Disk Storage mode. (At least for Windows computers) If it were acting like a USB drive, like other iPods, you run the risk of corrupting the files if you pull the USB drive out while data is being written to the device.

    Hence, no real need to eject before removing from the computer. Of course stoping the device from Windows is probably not a bad idea.

    yes, he is correct. however there is no need at all to stop anything from anything. if the ipod doesnt say "sync in progress" then no data is being transfered and terefor is totally safe to unplug.
