    This is baffling me, and I'm hoping someone here can figure it out.

    When I open iTunes, it tells me my music library is 17.43 GB, but when I click on my device in iTunes and look at the breakdown, it tells me my music is taking up 18.79 GB.

    What the hell is causing this 1.3 GB discrepancy in the size of my music library in iTunes and on my iPod? I can't possibly have 1.3 GB of downloaded artwork in iTunes.

    See how much space the 'iTunes music' folder takes up, i doubt it's 1.3 GB of Art... :/

    Do I check that in iTunes or what?

    I know I looked at the Album Artwork folder and it's only about 103 MB. Definitely not the 1.3 GB difference I'm seeing. :\ All I know is when I look in my library, I see this:

    But when I look at my iPod info in iTunes, I see this:

    I tried deleting my songs from the iPod and resyncing them, thinking maybe something got leftover in there, but the results are the same.

    Audio from videos? Podcasts? Audio podcasts show up as music.

    I don't have 1.3 GB of podcasts, and my podcasts aren't on my iPod anyway. :\
