    I just tried to save 7948 pictures (723 mb) to my ipod touch and had like 3 gb of space free.. But it gave me an error message like "some of your photos couldn't be transfered because there is not enough space". the capacity bar says there are 2,18 gb of photos saved on my ipod (those ~8000 are the only pictures i ever tried to transfer).. is this supposed to be like this? please explain it to me.. 4486 photos are missing, the other ones take up way too much space and there's a 5gb folder of ipod photo cache on my hard drive, i don't get it. could you please tell me WHY this is happening? or even a way to prevent this from happening?

    EDIT: oh, and the quality of the pictures that actually ended up on my ipod suffered quite a bit.

    It turns them into bitmaps which are about 3x as big.

    ~50% are scans of books, manga and music sheets. way more compact than carrying tons of books around all the time.

    it does not HAVE to. but i'm keeping my pics on devices which are capable of displaying them in higher resolution. i'm waiting for a safe jailbreak... you know those h-games where you need to move the mouse etc? should be better than actual sex when played with a touchscreen.

    this thread's getting out of control.
