1. Try opening Image Capture and set the preferences for the desired action when you attach a camera (i.e., open iphoto). Also, if you erase all the photos from the camera roll (after downloading them) you may find it doesn't open anything.
2. Check itunes preference > devices and see if "disable automatic syncing" is checked.
Regarding your 2nd problem, you need to check if "iTunes Helper" is in your login items at startup.
System Preferences > Accounts under Login Items for your login account.
If the iTunes Helper is not available as a login item for your account and you have selected automatically sync when this iPhone is connected under the Summary tab for your iPhone sync preferences, deselect this and then select Apply. Reselect automatically sync with this iPhone is connected and if the iTunes Helper is not installed, you should be prompted if you want to install it.
Craig and Allan,
Thanks very much for taking the time to respond to my question.
I should have mentioned that I am running Windows XP on a PC.
That being said, I'm not sure where to find "Image Capture", or is that just a Mac program? I did a search on Windows and couldn't find anything.
Allan, I did run msconfig and checked the box to have iTunes Helper start up with the PC, and that did solve my problem regarding iTunes not automatically starting up.
I just need to figure out about the "camera" issue.
These articles contain the instructions for changing that notification on PCs:
iPhone and iPod touch: Disabling digital camera notification in Windows XP
iPhone and iPod touch: Disabling digital camera notification in Windows Vista
Hope this helps,
