    Hi,

    I want my ipod touch (rev B) to auto-eject after it has finished auto-synching to save me having to do that manually everytime. Is this possible? I can't see to find any settings for it and a search turns up nothing... Anyone with any ideas please chime in. Thanks. :)

    I'm not sure it really matters anyway. You can safely disconnect the Touch without ejecting it through iTunes unless it's actively syncing.

    you mean by just pulling it out without first ejecting it?

    Yup! If it's plugged in and the screen is dark, just yank that cord!

    It should be possible using Automator and Applescript, but as I'm no expert I'm not completly sure.

    I'm not sure How to get it to detect an iPod when connected, but if you chain Update iPod Action with the Eject iPod action it should work as long as you iPod is set for Automatically Sync.

    Perhaps someone More familiar with Automator could Chime in.

    I don't think it's very easy to do with automator but it depends what you need it for.

    I use a similar function to synchronise my ipod in the morning then it ejects itself half an hour after it starts. It's maybe not as convenient as you'd hoped but can be quite handy for me and easy to make in automator with a few simple actions (update ipod, pause, eject ipod). Hope that helps

    If the sync is finished, there's no need to manually eject it.

    when sync finished if it says "ipod finished syncing, ok to remove" in the now playing box just pull it out, it's fine to close itunes after a sync but whilst it's charging so this shouldnt be any different

    All the above are true provided you have the option to use your ipod as a hard disk turned off.

    Thanks for all your replies. :)

    The answer would seem to be just yank it out! (I don't have the disk mode enabled).

    And since there's no disk mode on a touch, he should be fine ;)
