My iTunes doesn't automatically recognize my iPod Touch at start up when I hook up the charger to my iPod Touch to sync to the iTunes, I have to manually click and start iTunes so that my iPod Touch can start and sync to the iTunes, after I get my iPod Touch to sync to my iTunes it is fine just at start up there is no recognition. How do I get the ITunes to automatically start up when I hook up my iPod Touch to the Charger?
Problem 2:
in iTunes under devices where my iPod Touch is located and I have my iPod Touch selected and choose the summary Tab and at the very bottom where it shows the capacity and then next to it is the Sync and eject button, right now and for a little the eject button isn't showing up just the sync button, the eject button is complelty not there at all, why is this? is it Possible to get the eject button to show up again?
Does anyone have any solutionsto help me?

    When the iPod is connected, on the Summary tab, is there a check in the box by the option +Open iTunes when this iPod is connected+ ? If not, check that box, then click the Apply button. If there is, un-check it, Apply, re-check, Apply again.

    ...the eject button is complelty not there at all, why is this? is it Possible to get the eject button to show up again?


    I don't have the Eject button there with the Sync button either. In that left column where you have the iPod Touch selected, beside the battery status icon should be a little eject symbol. Click that and the iPod will be removed from your Source List, and you can disconnect the cable.

    Regards.

    Yes I do have and see the little eject symbol, thanks.
    That Eject button that was next to the capacity area where the sync button is, use to be there with the sync button but now it isn't, did you have that too? that the eject button suddenly disappeared?
    do you have any idea why this is? does it have to do with the new updates lately??
    Thanks for your help.

    This could be a change with the 2.1 iPod software, or with iTunes 8. I honestly don't know, because I just got the 2g Touch, which came with 2.1.1, and it is my first iPod ever. Maybe someone who upgraded from version 1 to 2.1 will chime in and tell when the Eject button was changed.

    Were you able to get iTunes to launch upon connecting the iPod?

    Yes, I was able to get my iPod Touch to Launch upon Connecting to my iPod.

    So far I haven't gotten an answer from other to why the the eject button diappeared?
    do you think I should put out another new question? regarding about this and see if I get an answer or just leave this as is?
    Thank You.

    If everything seems to be working properly, I wouldn't worry about the missing eject button. However, if you want to tell Apple that the change bothers you, in iTunes select +Provide iTunes Feedback+ from the iTunes menu. If a lot of people complain, perhaps they will consider putting it back in the next update.

    In Windows, you can eject the iPod using CTRL+E.
