Right, I know this will be one of the easiest things in the world to fix but I can't find where to fix it and it is crazy annoying. Whenever I plug my iPod into iTunes, it starts to sync (as usual) but after it has synced, it starts to backup my ipod which takes like 30 minutes. It is so annoying because I can't use my ipod because it says a sync is in progress and when I cancel the backup anything that I have tried to sync is not on my iPod because the backup didn't complete. I hope there is something in iTunes I can just switch off. Please help! ! !
