    Hi i recently discovered that 6gb of the 16gb is being used up by "other" in the memory usage bar. Isnt it abit too much since the apps are like 2mb. Is there any way to bring it down? Thanks

    Well, it has to be in /var/ somewhere. If you've got a Mac and are using AFPd, you can open the iPod's mobile user home directory, and root around with "Get Info..." until you find where it's going.

    Psx roms are usually the culprit. if you are getting this on a fresh restore without doing anything after the restore, restore again.

    this happened to me because i deleted a file with finder.app. If you did this u gotta open finder and hit the little apple in the right top conner then go to trash and delete the files in there.
