    I simply want to sync my iphones without going through the backup BS everytime. I've already done the things in prefs to disable auto backup but it still continues to backup everytime I go to sync.

    What's the trick to really turn it off.

    You went to edit > preferences > Devices tab then highlighted your ipod in the devices backups box and selected "prevent ipods and iphones from syncing automatically"?

    I had this happen to me a couple times, also. Fortunately, I had my older computer that I was switching from to retrieve the original setting, but I still lost a few notes and scores along the way.

    This helped me after I found it tucked away.

    Edit: Oh, and do this BEFORE you plug in the ipod.
