    Try to restore your iPod by using that lower button and see if new downloaded firmware will clear that for you. If not, your best bet is probably to contact Apple and ask them what's up with that...

    what might be happening is what happens sometimes with the ipod videos is that it copies the music on twice, once regular and once in other, so first try restoring it, and if that doesnt help, yeah i would suggest you return it to apple.

    Cheers,
    Ben.

    P.S. you might have cool files on it.

    mostly it is due to sync error on some files. same thing happened to me when i tried to sync a bunch of video clips to the touch; when it is almost done, it gave me a sync error saying the device is not connected. after i restart itune, i got a mysterious 1.8gb under "Other" on the capacity bar (total size of the video clips is 2gb). all i did was go to the movie tab, sync the movie to a blank folder which will erase all of your movies and videos currently in your touch, cleared the not so "mysterious" space.
