I'm using Release 3.9 on the nano 2G.

Using the information from the manual (Section 3.3 -, I tried to prevent the ipod from connecting to the computer by holding down a key as I plugged in the device.

The ipod froze after about 1-2 seconds and required a hard reset (Menu+Select). It didn't seem to matter which key I held down.

This happens consistently, but I have not noticed any other side effects like the ones mentioned here:

Reason for closing:  Duplicate
Additional comments about closing:  This is close enough to  FS#12031  that its almost certainly the same underlying problem.

It's different in three ways:

1) no corruption occurs when I do a force restart.

2) Also, according to that bug report it works fine the first couple times he reinstalls, but it never worked for me, it failed the first time I tried it.

3) Also, according to that bug report it also happens when he plugs it in regularly (Disk Mode). Disk mode works fine for me.
