Automatically sync when connecting an iPod
Authored by: rv8 on Oct 19, '10 08:48:50AM

How is this hint better than going into iTunes Preferences, Devices section, and deselecting the "Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically" option?

Maybe...

Maybe the OP wants to auto-syn his iPod but not his phone...
In this case, the trick above (stop iTunes to auto-sync devices from the iTunes pref pane) wouldn't work. So maybe is trying to auto-sync is iPod and "manually-auto-sync" his phone only (while "auto-auto-sync" his iPod)... Just a guess...

Automatically sync when connecting an iPod

You know, there are other phones than iPhones. I use iSync to sync two phones (private and work) via bluetooth. As I wrote in the hint, in older version of iTunes you had en option to run iSync when you connected an iPod. Since I connect my iPod every day that meant that both my phones automatically where synced (=backed up) every day. Unfortunately Apple removed this feature but this script restores a functionality at least Apple (and I) considered useful.

Oooohhhh, okay. That makes a lot of sense now. The fact that you were talking about iSync and third-party phones -- as opposed to iTunes and iPhones -- was not at all clear in the actual hint.
