Windows 7: iPhone w/o iTunes

24 Oct 2011   #11

7 Pro. 64Bit w/SP1

I installed iTunes as a test, now MM can see my iPhone & sync my music; I just wish MM was able to sync more than just the music, but I may have found an alternative: Transfer Music from iPod to iTunes. Copy iPhone Music to Computer, iPod to PC and iPhone to Mac. iPod rip.

The reasons I don't want iTunes are:
1. New Processes running & eating memory (what are conhost & disnoted for, do I really need these)?
2. 3 new Services automatically running at bootup

I removed the iTunesHelper.exe from running at startup by using MSConfig & the registry.

I am currently using Copytrans Manager as an iTunes alternative to add and manage music on my iPhone. Unfortunately, MediaMonkey is not yet compatible with the iOS 5.
