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....

Well that was my iPone, but the same thing happens with my pad only iTunes says iPad.

Any thoughts?

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.
