IPod Nano won't update; screen stays on "Do not disconnect" for hours

Advertisement

Every time I plug in my iPod Nano, the "Do Not Disconnect" screen pops up and stays there. At first, iTunes responded and said it updated it, which it didn't, but now, iTunes doesn't even respond. The iPod just stays on the screen forever and my computer doesn't do anything except open a folder.
Can someone help, please, because this is really annoying me.
