I have some frame rate issues do you guys recommend anything to help with that?
Again, you have failed to answer previous questions (did you use the the presets.xml file?) and you have not explained what your framerate issues
actually are. Until you do, help is extremely difficult to give.
but I knew it was not in use so I unplugged it, no harm done to the iPod and the video played but my computer got a blue error screen and instantly restarted itself.Â Is there a "safer" way to do this?
How did you know it was not in use? Sometimes file transfers have a delayed write to an external drive due to buffering/caching. You were lucky not to damage your iPod's file system.
The safer way is to try the disconnect again and wait until it says it is
safe to disconnect.
