Ashik,

It works! Thanks.

Wonder why this has to be fixed this way.
MM should take care of this.

After having this exact issue with Win 7 and a 4.x version of MediaMonkey recently installed, I've found a different fix that might be a better option than deleting device drivers as has been suggested. Windows can be very unforgiving when one is deleted and the system has corrupted or missing/misplaced device files or other 'hiccups', and it refuses to re-install them at all.

This method requires that you have admin privileges, as it deals with editing the registry.

1. Open regedit.exe ('run as administrator'), and locate the following: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoplayHandlers\KnownDevices

2. Under that entry will be another one called "MediaMonkeyDeviceHandler". Right-click on that entire branch in the left-hand pane, and select "Rename".

3. When the entry can be edited, add some text to it without deleting the current name, i.e., "OLD.MediaMonkeyDeviceHandler". This allows you to re-edit to enable it later if you choose to restore the functionality.

4. Restart Windows, plug in your device (Apple or otherwise), and the autoplay is disabled.

Go to Device Manager/Portable Devices/iPhone

Delete it (right click)

Disconnect then reconnect iPhone

it will now AutoPlay normally after reinstalling device driver.

Thank you.

Thank you again SIR!

The boys at Ventis Media really want to control the iPhone experience. Man, you have to jump through hoops to prevent a total take-over by MediaMonkey. Version 3 was way better...

I have the same issue.
I change the autoplay setting, save and the next time I connect the iPhone it resets to automatically starting MediaMonkey
Very Frustrating

How come people seem not to read posting before replaying?

I have the same problem stated by monkeydude461 and Flavio.
Followed the steps in ehow.com page (which by the way I already knew).
Now the settings for Autostart are "Ask me every time"
Once I plug in my iPhone again the settings are automatically reset to "sync with MediaMonkey".

Does anyone really know how to get rid of this feature?

Thanks

It's a Windows setting and not a MediaMonkey one. You'll need to follow the instructions here: http://www.ehow.com/how_5338935_stop-au ... ndows.html

I have tried what you wrote above here, but when i plug the iphone in, the setting seems to reset itself to "sync with MM".

Have tried to restart windows, update MM from 3.5 to 4, restart again, but the same thing happens no mather what I do. Really annoying!

Upgrade to MediaMonkey 4 (http://www.mediamonkey.com/news/2011/11 ... diamonkey/) and if you still see access violations submit a debug log to support: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=69

Thanks for both response. I was not aware that you could selectively turn off autorun. It worked, and now if I could just get rid of the random access violations I would be a happy monkey fan!
