I have an iPhone 4s with ios 5.1.  I sync with iTunes daily.  All of a sudden I'm getting not enough space to hold all items in iTunes library (additional 5.51 GB required).  I'm sure I didn't add anything that large to be synched.  Help.

I have an iPhone 4S with ios 5.1.  I synch with iTunes regularly.  All of a sudden I'm short 5.51 GB when I try to sync.  Specifically, I get a message that my iPhone "cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 5.51 GB required).  I have not subscribed to anything new.  And in the device node of iTunes, it appears that I don't even have much on the phone.  Luckily, most items appear to still be on my phone.
