Ridiculous... "other" space. Apple provide technical details about this! It is now taking up 2GB of data on a fully restored and default iOS. 

 

Also, it is impossible to manage a mp3 collection. If sorting through music manually and deleting duplicates or those you no longer want on your play list, it does not relfect the free space. Also if I decided to delete an entire playlist.... the capacity of the device does not change!?

 

I have restored the device several times. I'm not about to restore it again just to free up space and pick through my playlist again. Apple is such a pain in the ***!

    Yes. Apple does not discuss the "other" category well.  The only real way to get it down ot less than 0.25 GB is to restore your iPod to factory defaults/new iPod.

     

    You are not addressing Apple here.  If you want to complain to Apple go here:

    Apple - iPod touch - Feedback

     

    For info, I was syncing my Nano yesterday and noticed that the the "other" actually increased just during syncing Podcasts to the Nano.

    Post information on Apples "Other" explaination. The restore / factory defaults does not rid the ipod of the other space. I've completed a restore 5 times and factory restore twice.

     

    Yes. Apple should be monitoring the community and interact with their customers.
