This works fine for your own mac, but what about when you plug in your iphone to someone else's mac to charge? How can you prevent your photo gallery from popping up on screen?



That was so easy, thanks for this helpful info!!



Best way to deal with it if you have multiple devices (and who doesn't) is to use Cameras by Flexbits ( From that you can select what action to do for each device. Like for me I don't want iPhoto to open when I put in my iPhone, but I do when I put in a SD card from my Nikon D40X.
