    To save you from flaming ill answer your question.

    The flash means the memory chip inside the ipod. The difference is shown with the 8, 16, or 32 GB capacities. Each has a different amount of flash memory.

    Yeah the flash is the amount of memory so the 32 gig has 32 gigabytes of flash

    What you are thinking about is Flash from Adobe. Flash is a kind of memory which are used in USB Thumb Drives. There is not a Flash player (from Adobe) in the new iPods if that's what your thinking about.

    ok so maybe it is just a misunderstanding... ok ill ask it this way... i used bosstool to clear up some space by relocating fonts... boss tool says something about two partitions... this is more what i was trying to say then i guess flash just wasnt the right wording... so between the two partions that boss tool says in in the memory are the memory sizes the same?

    Ill make it simple. Flash is memory, more flash more memory.

    ok well im understanding now i guess.... can someone tell me what BossTool is doing then when it is relocating the fonts? and what the reason to "relocate" them if memory is flash and flash is memory i guess meaning its all the same =/

    Apple has formated the flash memory to have 2 partitions. That means they divided it into two parts. One part is for the OS, and the other is for files from iTunes and such. The OS partition is 300mb, most of which is taken up by the OS itself. When you move fonts and other things, it frees up space there for other things by putting them in the Media partition.
