On my MBP iTunes won't start automatically when I connect my iPhone or iPad?

Today I encountered the following problem om my MBP:
When I connect my iPhone 3GS or iPad on the MBP, iTunes (v10.2.2) doens't launch automatically.
After self-starting iTunes I can synchronise and so on.
Can somebody tell how I can change this behaviour?
The iTunes-option "Voorkom automatische synch.... van iPods, ..." --> "do not automatically sync ... iPods, ..." isn't enabled.
Many thx
Gerd

Hmmm..uninstalled, reinstalled, ran Software Update...something patched in iTunes, now works like a charm

  • ITunes does not open automatically when I connect my iPhone 4.

    Yes......I have checked off the necessary box on the "home page".
    iTunes DOES open when I connect my iPod.
    Any ideas?

    plug your phone into iTunes, check the box to prevent syncing, unplug the phone, plug it back in, then uncheck the box again, then disconnect and shut down iTunes, plug in your phone and it should automatically open

  • ITunes does not start automatically when iPod is connected

    iTunes used to start automatically when I connected iTunes. It no longer does. Can I fix that?

    Connect your iPod and open iTunes. Towards the bottom of the iPod screen, there are four check boxes. The top one says "Open iTunes when iPod is connected." Check that box and click apply. If it is checked, uncheck it and click apply, eject and reconnect your iPod, then recheck it and click apply.

  • ITunes no longer starts automatically whwn I connect my devices

    Hi there,
    This is a small problem, but an annoying one. Before updating to iTunes 10.5 (and my devices to iOS5), iTunes used to start up when I connected any one of my apple devices (iPod Classic/iPod nano/iPad/2 x iPhones) and start syncing automatically. Now I have to start iTunes manually, and although my iPhone/iPod/iWhatever is listed under 'Devices' in the sidebar on the left, I have to click the sync button myself.
    I know, I know – small potatoes compared with the problems of others, but a little bit annoying. I used to love it when I connected my device and iTunes did exactly what I wanted without me doing anything.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Michael
    Thanks for the link to the tip!
    In that link Nick Holmes said that the iTunesHelper app was to be fount in the contents of the iTunes app, in the folder Contents>Resouces. As it turns out it was in 'Contents>MacOS'
    I wonder if there was a change in the location of the iTunesHelper when it switched from iTunes 10.4.x to 10.5, because although iTunesHelper was in my Login items, it wasn't working.
    To cut a long story short, I removed iTunesHelper from my loginitems, re-added it using the instruction in your link and rebooted - hey presto, it worked!!!
    So thanks to you, and well done for crediting Nick Holmes. I'll send some positive vibes his way...

    Have just upgraded to LION.  iTuneshelper in Login items is now not found and iTunes will not start automatically when an iPhone is connected via USB.

    Itunes does not start automatically when I plug in my iPhone.  When I start it manually, it never recognizes the phone although it does ask if I want to download pictures etc.  Many albums have no art work that use to.  iTunes completely unresponsive to the mouse.

  • Suddenly iTunes does not open automatically when I connect Ipod

    Hi,
    iTunes used to open automatically when I connect my Ipod but now it does not although I did not change anything to my system.
    In place of iTunes I now have the Windows 7 choice dialog in which iTunes does not appear.
    How come?

    Open iTunes when this iPod is connected: has always been checked
    I thought you said there was no such option above?
    and nothing else
    Okay. Head to the Start menu and choose the *Control Panel* and when it comes up choose *Hardware and Sound* from the list of options. Next choose *Change default settings for media or devices*. Scroll down to the bottom where you will find an entry for Apple iPod. Go ahead and change its action to "Take no Action." Any luck there?
    I'm not quite sure why iTunes isn't opening upon connection, but we'll see where we can take this. I would start with removing iTunes and re-installing again using these instructions.

  • Since installing 10.5, Itunes will no longer open automatically when I connect my Iphone or insert a CD.  Nor will it, when I insert a CD, recognize the CD unless I close Itunes and open it again.  Any ideas?

    Assuming your iTunes is open, as the article you attached suggests, make sure you're running the latest version of iTunes, which is currently version 11.0.1.

  • Upgraded to itunes 11.4 and now when i connect my iphone 4s..itunes crash!!!!

    upgraded to itunes 11.4 and now when i connect my iphone 4s..itunes crash!!!!when the iPhone is disconnected iTunes is working properly....
    please help me!!!

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    For this step, the title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    In the top right corner of the Console window, there's a search box labeled Filter. Initially the words "String Matching" are shown in that box. Enter the name of the crashed application or process. For example, if iTunes crashed, you would enter "iTunes" (without the quotes.)
    Each message in the log begins with the date and time when it was entered. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    ☞ The log contains a vast amount of information, almost all of which is irrelevant to solving any particular problem. When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    ☞ Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    In the Console window, select
              DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION ▹ User Diagnostic Reports
    (not Diagnostic and Usage Messages) from the log list on the left. There is a disclosure triangle to the left of the list item. If the triangle is pointing to the right, click it so that it points down. You'll see a list of crash reports. The name of each report starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report related to the process in question. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste to post the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot.
    I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.
    If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a crash, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. Choose DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.
    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
    Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.
