    hey everybody

    my problem is as following. itunes says i have 2.5gb storage used for "others", not music, not pictures, not videos, not apps...

    i have no clue what it could be. do you have any ideas what that might be???

    thanks for your help

    What he said.

    Also, if you're on firmware 2.0 with any version of iTunes below 8.0 then "other" is applications. But there is also an issue when you get a heap of "other" so you may want to restore if you have the time.

    im not jailbroken (running fw 2.1) and im using itunes 8.

    jeah i would of course restore my ipod, but i normally sync with another pc, and on this pc i normally sync the harddisk has crashed (ipod backup is on there) so on this pc i have no backup from my ipod. and if i would restore my ipod all contacts, pictures, favorites would have gone away...

    my question: how can i backup my ipod manually?

    does anybady have another suggestion for solving the problem WITHOUT losing all my stuff

    greez and thanks
