Stop iPad automatically downloading music?

If I purchase a song through iTunes on my laptop, intended for my iPod, I find it already downloaded onto my iPad.

How can I stop this? I have different songs for different devices.

Shouldn't the purchase of a song on iTunes allow you to put it on as many of your own devices as you like???

Go into Settings on the iPad, tap iTunes and App stores, and from there you can disable (or enable) automatic downloads.

Hope that helps!

Yes, it does, but that was not his question.

Thanks mate!

I thought as much, but when I attempted to turn it off yesterday by going through the iTunes/App Store settings, it just showed my email address, and would only let me interact with that. At the time I was having issues 'connecting to the iTunes store', but since I changed the date and back again, I can connect - weird, hey?

And since am able to connect to the iTunes store again, the other settings are showing up, so I've disabled automatic downloads. I didn't realise that those settings only appeared when you were connected to the iTunes store?
