Since I upgraded to Mavericks, whenever I plug in my iPod, Spotlight tries to index my iPod. I don't want this to happen, since it puts a lot of stress on the iPod's drive (iPod 4th Generation, 40GB), and I don't really need it to be indexed. This has not happened with previous versions of OS X.
I've tried excluding the iPod from the Spotlight settings, but it still is preparing to index the iPod when I open Spotlight.
Is there a way to exclude the iPod from the Spotlight indexing?
It looks like there was an error when I first tried to add my iPod to the list of excluded items in Spotlight's Privacy settings. When I opened the settings again, it wasn't listed there anymore. I added it again, and this time it worked - the indexing stopped.
For some reason it ignored it on my first try.
