This is with my girlfriend's nano, and previously with my nano before it disappeared into the sock dimension. I'm asking partly out of sheer curiosity, and partly because it may happen with my Touch when I get it. When I turn on my computer with her nano plugged in, it boots up halfway and just sits there on a black screen with a blinking cursor up at the top left hand corner. I've tried leaving it like this on the off-chance it was loading something but eventually I had to just turn it off, unplug the ipod and turn it back on. So it's really just a minor inconvenience - I can work with it. Was just wondering if anyone here knew what was causing it because knowing my luck it's an easy fix.
