    I've been noticing that my 16GB touch show I've already used up 102.9 MB; I've downloaded 72 songs so far and so I don't know how it went up that high (I know album cover artworks, especially through itunes take up at least 1.02 MB, but this doesn't appear to be the cause; my previous 8GB ipod had 337 songs, yet it showed I only used 14 MB after I downloaded the album cover artworks). I selected the photos tab and under "all photos" it is showing a total of 162 photos - could this be it? The thing is I didn't select any photos to be transferred to my ipod. Anyone? FWIW, my version is 1.1.3 with the new software applications.

    102.9 MB sounds about right for 72 songs. I wouldn't be worried, I think that it's normal.

    1.1.3 does that. Its the apps which you haven't bought waiting. D

    Thats actually a little low

    4mb is the average song
    72 songs

    4x72=288MB

    Well it depends on the bitrates and song lengths.

    So I guess with the new software apps it's normal for the ipod to take up that much space? Like I mentioned before, my 8GB only used up 14MB for album cover artworks and that's based on 337 songs downloaded. Regarding the songs I've downloaded so far on my 16GB touch, they were all recorded at 128kpbs (to me they sound okay; but I'm sure if I upgrade to a higher quality pair of headhphones I will need to burn them at a higher rate, but then, it means I will need to download all over again..yikes!
