    Just wondering what the other section in iTunes when you look at your iPods disk usage is. Mine is 1.3 GB. I suspect it has something to do with Cydia, ect..., but that seems like a lot considering I only have 4-5 apps installed from Cydia.

    Just curious how I can clear up some space.

    If you have mxtube, all your videos are there.
    Any Cydia apps are there
    Any videos/music/*******s in dTunes or mewseek are there
    Finally, I believe the iPod firmware itself is there, which takes up 200+ mb.

    The "other" section is everything in /private/var/mobile/Media/ that's not Photos, Applications, Music, or Videos.

    Downloads from MewSeek or Safari, things that you put in there from jailbroken applications.

    Thanks guys. I've gone through there but still can't find what's taking up so much space. I'll keep looking and hopefully I can find it.

    I've downloaded the entire media folder to my pc to look closer at the contents. Everything combined except the iTunes_Control folder is only 331MB. iTunes_Control obviously has all my music in it so it's about 5GB. Still can't find where all this extra disk usage is, but it's not in the private/var/mobile/media folder...
