Disable "please install iTunes" message

Postby pmjm » Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:33 pm

Hello,

How can I disable the message: "An iPhone/iPod/iPad connection was detected. Please install iTunes in order to sync this device with MediaMonkey?"

I plug my iPad in to the computer only to charge and have no desire to ever sync. But I also have MediaMonkey running 24/7 on that computer, so it gets annoying when that message keeps popping up.

Thanks!

Hi,
Go To Tools -> Options -> Portable Devices and Disable all iPod and iPhone plugins.

Also to completely make sure Device connection not trigger any app when device is connected in File Explorer under Address bar paste "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\AutoPlay" then locate device and change behavior to Do nothing.

Thank you! That did it! I do need an autorun, my motherboard has a utility that switches the USB ports to "fast charge" when a chargeable device is plugged in, so the second part doesn't apply to my situation, but MediaMonkey is now uninterrupted. Thanks again!

Uh oh, I think I spoke too soon! I just rebooted the machine and I still get the message, despite the fact that all the i-devices are unchecked in the Tools-Options-Portable Device Sync screen. Is there somewhere else I need to go to disable this?

Thanks!

Are they still shown as disabled in MediaMonkey?

Yes, they are. In fact I've disabled every checkmark in that list.
