Seems like a strange question, but here is the situation: when I arrive at work, I want to recharge my iPod. The easiest way to do that is via the USB connection on my computer.
But if I plug it in, I have the minor irritation that the iPod goes straight to the Do not disconnect screen (interrupting playback). I then have to go to the Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media option in Windows (Windows 7) to get what I really want: the iPod just charging as if plugged in to the mains.
Is there a simple way to prevent this? I don't have (or want) iTunes installed.
