    Is it normal for my iPod Touch 8GB to be almost filled up already? I have 100 apps, 315 songs, 1 hour and 15 minutes of vids, and 10 podcasts. Plus about 0.9GB is taken by 'OTHER'

    I currently have 1GB left !

    Hmm. What do you think the 'Other' is.. And do you think the videos are taking up space?

    Other is probably any jailbroken data if you are jailbroken. And yes, videos do take up space.

    Did you restore from backup after being jailbroken? If so, then that's it.

    Yeah, oh. That's bad. :/ I want to keep my songs on, i don't think there's a way to get back my capacity WITHOUT restoring.. I'll have to delete some vids. Apps take up PLENTY of the space though, according to itunes

    If you wanna save space without deleting anything. There's an option to lower the audio quality of the songs on your iPod to save space. I did it, halved the space audio files took up on the iPod with no noticeable drop in quality
