    Is there a way to get the the computer to not automatically start syncing with the iPod when i connect it?

    I want to just plug it in for charging and then launch iTunes to sync it...

    Any ideas...

    In iTunes' preferences, under the iPod tab, can't you just select "Manually manage songs and playlists"?

    ah, this i'd like too! I know there is a setting somewhere but I can't think of where right now.

    EDIT: There is a checkbox on the Music tab under iPod where it says Open iTunes when this iPod is attached. Just uncheck it.
