ipod problem that i've never heard of


my ipod freezes the loading mp3 process, and i can't cancel loading mp3's i have to turn off the computer so that i don't have to disconnect it, but when the loading stops the date and time in the upper right part of the screen freezes. i had to restore my ipod because it wasn't showing up on the desktop now it shows up, but freezes after putting more than 40 songs on it

anybody seen this before?

it's a 40 gig, that came out just before the ipod photo came out
