    I know for some Thumb Drives you need to eject it first.

    My iPod I just pull the plug I've had no problems.

    Has anybody had any problems doing that?

    Do you unplug it?

    Or.

    Do you Eject it?

    I have never had any problems just by pulling it out. But I tend to now, as I'm being cautious

    I always use the eject button in iTunes, not sure if it makes any difference, but its there, so I just use it.

    I've never used the ejection button with the Touch. I do use the eject with the nano.
    You had to use eject with the other models, but you don't have to with the Touch.

    I've lost data on a key once because I didn't eject it properly.

    It's always best to eject it, that way the cache clears out and all open files are closed the right way.

    After its done syncing I just pull the iPod Touch out, same thing I do with my External Drives.

    Just make sure it finishes doing what it did (Syncing) before you pull it out.
