View Full Version : Stop iPhoto from launching when iPod is connected.

Requires Leopard:

Download this background process that I created. It prevents iPhoto from opening when iPod remains connected, but process can be quit through Activity Monitor. It remains open when you disconnect your iPod, connecting it opens iPhoto but it quits as soon as you activate the iPhoto window.


P.S. Like the title??? :D:D:D:D:D:D

Hopefully, this works for everyone on Leopard:

the only reason iPhoto loads when an ipod is connected is because you have screenshots you have taken on your touch. If you have no screenshots iPhoto wont load..... simple and straight forward ;)

It's also as simple as:

iPhoto -> Preferences -> General -> Connecting Camera Opens: -> No Application.

iPhoto recognises the iPod touch with saved images as a camera so that they can be transferred back to the computer.
