    Hi,

    I can't sync a photo folder w/ 5 pics in it to my iPod Touch, despite iTunes showing 165 MB of available space, and the 5 pics can't take up more than a few MBs. The error message says the photos cannot be synced b/c there is not enough space to copy all the photos and folders.

    Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Did you check the total size of the pictures?

    And remember that the space left is just an estimate, and iTunes has a feature built in where it won't use up too much data.

    Have you tried deleting stuff?

    Thanks for the help shortperson.

    Yeah, the photos are less than 1 MB in total. These are the only photos I attempted to copy. Originally, I wanted to copy them when iTunes showed 115 MB of available space. As that failed (I received the error message "not enough available space"), I deleted some music files so I ostensibly had 165 MB of free space ~ but still the error message.

    I'm not sure what this built-in storage-limiting feature is you're talking about, but it seems totally off that it would kick in when there are apparently almost 200 MB of free space left ...
