    Whenever I press sync in iTunes, it starts doing all sorts of things like backing up the ipod touch, downloading the applications which takes forever. Is there a way just to sync the podcasts? I have gone through all the various settings and deselected everything that might be causing this.

    I don't know why many have used ml_ipod with winamp in the past but I had a good thing going. But unfortunately Apple seems to have broken the support with the latest firmware. :(

    Don't you just go to the iPhone Music tab and select Podcast? Or perhaps you could make a playlist consisting of only Podcasts and then only sync that playlist? You can do this for turning off the App downloads too.

    In prefs you can turn off backing up the iPhone.

    Where in preferences can you disable auto back up and app downloads? I've looked everywhere!
