Regarding your original problem, have you tried restoring your iPod in iTunes?
Just connect your iPod to your computer, and, under the "Summary" tab where you see your iPod's main preferences/contents, click the "Restore" button.
Restoring deletes all of the contents off of your iPod, but usually fixes over-reported "Other" space problems.
While your iPod's "Other" space might be reasonably taken up by such things like Album artwork, contacts, calendar, notes, etc., if the amount of your iPod's "Other" space seems to be unproportional and incorrect, typically it's just a relatively simple issue with iTunes misreading the details of your iPod. Restoring usually fixes the problem.
