    Must have missed something or changed a setting, but when I plug my iPad 2 into my Mac it no longer automatically starts iTunes. This also happens with my iPhone.

    Is there some setting that got turned off or was this a change in an update from Apple?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think when idevice is connected open iTunes & check the general tab and should be a check box near bottom for "open iTunes when device is connected".....I think....

    OK here is how I fixed it:

    Unchecked box to open iTunes when iPad is connected
    Clicked APPLY
    Checked box to open iTunes when iPad is connected
    Clicked APPLY
    Window opens asking me if I want to have iTunes open........ Click Yes to install iTunes Helper

    Now it works.

    Thanks for the help or I would not have messed with unchecking and rechecking.
