    IPad Autoplay - question 1 - Options

    Hi - when I used to connect my iPad via a USB cable, iTunes would automatically open to synchronize the iPad with my pc. I thought it still worked that way when I first setup my new Windows 10 pc, but somewhere along the line (updates to iTunes and or Windows 10) that functionality seems to have gone missing.

    I have iTunes configured to sync when connected.

    Now when I connect my iPad I can select from the following list (ask me every time is the default Autoplay action)

    My problem is that I would like to have Sync device (iTunes) as an option. How do I add iTunes as an option to the list?

    It should still do it. That's what happens on my iPad. I used to do the same with my iPhone but with the advent of the iCloud Music Library / iTunes match there is no need to do it anymore. To be honest the sync process is quite buggy, Apple have neglected manually sync'ing in last few years.

    What happens if you open iTunes manually with the iPad connected via USB. Does it then start the sync process? Or is that failing to kick off too? You could try a different USB port but I suspect as the windows autoplay actions is triggering that's not your problem - you could try uninstalling iTunes, bonjour and apple mobile device driver and then re-installing iTunes again after that (I know that's probably not an appetising prospect) as it may fix this.

    Thanks - uninstalling iTunes/Apple software and reinstalling resolved the issue. I have set the default autoplay action to do nothing as iTunes opens automatically now.
