    iPad 2 CDMA 64 gig, running 7.0.6. My MBPr is running OS X 10.9.4 and iTunes 11.3

    Trying to back up the iPad to update iOs. When I start the back up to computer, iTunes starts the process, goes through a few apps and then flips open iPhoto. I already transferred all photos to iPhoto and left them on the iPad. When I cloe out the iPhoto iTunes is in a loop and will not back up the apps. If I quit the apps and re-start the process it will back up a few apps ( 2 to 6 ) before the whole cycle starts over. I have 180 apps so this is not ideal. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like iPhoto thinks your iPad is a camera.

    In iPhoto preferences (the File Menu) select the General tab and change 'Connecting Camera Opens:" to 'no application'.
