    Would very much appreciate any help with the following problem, please.

    I have just upgraded my iPad2 from iOS 6.1 to 9.2 ...
    iTunes has suddenly started ignoring various settings and is downloading music automatically to the iPad.
    It is re-downloading things I have deleted from the iPad - it does this repeatedly!
    And it is refusing to copy items to the iPad when I manually drag them there.

    I looked through the iTunes settings on my MacBook, which are as follows:
    1. Preferences > Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically ... checked
    2. Rick's iPad > Settings > Summary > Manually update music and video ... checked
    3. Rick's iPad > Settings > Music > Sync Music ... unchecked

    This has worked absolutely fine under iOS 6.1 for years.
    Can anybody explain why it's now behaving differently under iOS 9.2 ?

    [EDIT: Sorry. To be completely accurate I should have said iOS 9.2.1 (just in case anyone suggests I install the 'patch' - it's already done. And in case it's relevant: iPad is NOT jailbroken.]
