I have an old 3rd generation iPod Nano I use for the gym. I don't have an iPhone and the only reason I use iTunes is to add/delete podcasts to my iPod. I don't listen to any music or watch movies or television shows from iTunes and really don't use.
Here's the problem. Whenever I plug my iPod into my computer (Windows 7), iTunes messes up the sound settings on my computer. My friends come over and we record our music or whatever for fun. I have an Asus Essence ST sound card on my computer and every time i plug in my iPod iTunes starts up and messes up with sound settings.
Is there a way to completely disable playback on iTunes and or disable iTunes from accessing my sound card?
