Prior to installing iTunes 8 on Windows XP, iTunes would automatically open and start syncing when I connected my iPhone 3g. Since installing iTunes 8 when I connect the iPhone the window still opens regarding downloading photos, but iTunes does not open. I have to click the iTunes icon on my desktop to start it and then it will start to sync automatically after iTunes loads. I have verified that ituneshelper.exe is running in the background. I also have verified the "Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected" is checked and that "Disable automtic syncing for iPhones and iPods" is not checked. If I connect my 5G iPod, iTunes does does open automatically and start to sync. Anyone have any ideas as to why this happens? Could it be a bug in iTunes 8? Could it be a new feature so that you can charge the phone through USB without starting iTunes? Thanks in advance for your help!
