I'd like to know what the other is for on my iTouch summary page? It is currently showing as 291 mb. All I have loaded is some video and music, there are no apps installed?

Thanks,

Dave

    Other can be Album Artwork, Notes, Contacts, Firmware (the operating system software) etc. or (and this doesn't apply to the iPod Touch or iPhone which don't have the option to enabled for disk use), files that are on there if you are using the iPod as a removable storage device. If you feel that Other is being incorrectly reported then try restoring your iPod.

    Hi thanks for the info - I've binned all the notes contacts and e-mails and managed to get down to 112 mb - this seems a lot for album artwork when I only have 13 albums on there - could it be anything else?

    Pretty much it is the firmware(you know the thing that takes like a half hour to download, then takes another half hour to install)
