iPod keeps ejecting problem

I know there are a lot of threads about this problem, but all the solutions postet were like: "recover the ipod from iTunes", "enable disk mode".
Well, at me it is enabled the disk mode, and I can't recover it because it doesn't stay connected more that 3 seconds.
I entered in the diagnostic menu; the charge power is ~20-40 mA. Too low, right?
I plugged it in another computer and it worked fine.

My ipod is Nano 5g.

Thanks!

One of the more obscure reasons for this is that the iPod is using the same drive letter as another drive.
Windows confuses iPod with network drive or hard drive and may keep iPod from mounting or songs may seem to disappear

Other connectivity issue solutions (iPod not recognized properly) are found here: iPod not recognized in 'My Computer' and in iTunes for Windows



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

Thanks for the reply, but didn't work for me.
I tried to recover it from iTunes while it was not ejected, but it all ended up with an error, so I cannot use it anymore.
I think I'm going to recover it again from another computer and sell it.

Since as you say, the iPod works fine in a different computer, then the problem is not the iPod, but your computer.

You'll need to fix your computer eventually.

You should probably look at that second link a little closer.

The most common problems are 1) Connecting it to a hub (somehow it doesn't get enough power) or 2) Using a generic USB cable instead of the one supplied. Sometimes that causes conflicts. Are you on either of those cases?
