    I don't understand how the Orange Bar (Other) at the bottom of the syncing screen gets bigger. Does anyone knows why?? A couple of days ago it was at about...250mg and now it is at 2.5GB...that's crazy. I have not uploaded anything besides a 600mg movie.

    I have an Ipod Touch 2G (16GB)

    Has anyone had this problem before?? How do u fix it??

    I'll appreciate the help.

    I have seen the orange 'other' partition grow to irregular sizes when you specify to manually manage your music, photos and videos. I used to do that and whenever I deleted stuff in Itunes or other 3rd party apps the orange would grow for no reason ( I think I read somewhere this stuff gets moved to some hidden folder).

    So now I always synch music and video with Itunes from 1 PC and only manually manage with OpenSSH/WinSCP which is a good reason to jb. The orange bar reflects a true partition size and this has also fixed album art and Cover flow which never worked properly either when manually managing stuff.

    Synchron.
