Do Not Disconnect

Do Not Disconnect

For the most part, I like my iPod. But there is one feature I can’t figure out.

How do I get my iPod to display the album artwork and/or the artist and song while it is docked? All mine ever displays is the “Do not disconnect” message.

I tried going into iTunes preferences and checking the “Display album artwork on your iPod” setting, but it just doesn’t take.

I’ve updated both iTunes and the iPod software. I’ve even tried this on both of my iPods on two computers.

It sure would be a nice if my iPod displayed useful information while docked, which would keep me from maximizing iTunes every time I want to know what I’m listening to.
