When ipod stop playing music, i could just quickly pull out the usb cable and reconnect it, and music starts playing again... at least this is faster than trying to take the ipod out and hard-reset/restart it...
Interesting. Are you using just the USB cable, or the Y cable? What does the iPod display show prior to doing this? We've seen it hang on the BMW screen or the normal iPod display, which might match your experience (and my wife just told me this happened yesterday and replugging the cable did in fact help.) But we've also seen it go back to the "apple" logo and reboot itself.
