    I'm guessing you're using Safari, as Safari does this if you don't change your options. Go to Safari > Preferences > General, and uncheck the box that says "Open "safe" files after downloading".

    Tried this but now iTunes does nothing after I select the file >_<

    Frustrating! Its the 4th time to download the file. Now Safari leaves it alone but iTunes doesn't like it? This is like a windows PC would behave... update the damn ipot pls mista Mac!
