    There's an option in that window which says "do nothing" and a check box for "remember this decision". Check both boxes and it should stop happening.

    Thank you Karen for your tips.

    Now I figured it out.

    This is what needs to be done in windows 7:

    click on start menu

    in the search bar at the very bottom type: autoplay

    Click on autoplay

    Scroll down to devices


    Find your iphone and choose "take no action"


    click Save and boom you are done.

    That annoying window will never pop up again

    Isn't there an option in iTunes when the iPhone is connected to turn off storage so that your PC doesn't read the iPhone as a storage device? I don't get that pop-up on my PC when I connect my iPhone.

    I know there's an option to keep iTunes from popping up every time my iPhone is connected. God used my work computer to email the Ten Commandments to Moses and any time I do more than one thing at a time, my comp pulls a Walt Disney and freezes.
    Dude! You slapped a fish. You punched it! Why would you hit it?

    Hm, I don't get the message when I connect my iPhone. I am running Windows 7 and have never changed the Autoplay settings. In fact, the internal storage of my iPhone is shown within the "Portable device" icon on My Computer but not directly on "My computer".

    It is only when a storage device appears directly within "My Computer" that my Autoplay pops-up.

    Thank you very much .. I'm using Windows 8 and you're the first person to give me a proper avenue to stop the madness. I charge my iPhone on my PC/USB, and every game I play uses fullscreen. Many of these are already unstable in Windows VISTA->8, so interrupting them can be a proper nasty.
