I've recently found that when I connect my iPod Touch (2.01) it launches Adobe Lightroom 2 rather than iTunes. Within iTunes the "Open iTunes when this iPod is connected" option is greyed out.

Any idea what's going on here? It's crazy!

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    Your iPod is recognised as a camera because you can now take screen shots, which will mount on a folder to be downloaded to your editing tool of choice. That the option in iTunes should be greyed out is weird, though.
    Hope this helps.

    Of course you're right. Thanks.

    If I go to Image Capture it recognises the iPod as a camera and offers to download screen grabs. Lightroom 2 also seems to recognise that it's 'camera-like' but won't find the images on it. (I didn't mention that I've set Lightroom via Image Capture prefs as the default app to launch when a camera is detected.)

    If I delete all screen grabs on the iPod then Lightroom doesn't launch on connection - but neither does iTunes and the option for auto-launch of iTunes remains greyed.

    There have been several upgrades recently: iTunes to 7.7.1, Lightroom to v.2, iPod firmware to 2.0 and 2.0.1. I'm not sure which of these is responsible though I would assume it's iPod 2.0 since that's the upgrade that gave the iPod it's camera-like attributes. If so Apple needs to address this ... please.
