Hi there,

I have a 6g nano, 16gb.

In iTunes I can see that out of the 14.98gb capacity, 12.4gb is audio, 0.75gb is free, and 1.90gb is "other". It shows up as yellow in the bar down the bottom in the capacity window.

My question is: what does "other" consist of?

I don't sync any photos, I don't sync any iTunes U. I don't have "enable disk use" checked, and I never have.

Anything I try to transfer off the ipod (eg podcasts, music, even audio books) decreases the audio content, but not the "other". So, what IS taking up 1.90gb of space on my nano?
Mac OS X (10.6.4)
