    No It goes in the Other part. Because it doesn't classify it as a picture.

    Is there any way to delete "OTHERS" in iTunes?

    Can we delete "others" file, it also consumes my space.?
    How do we avoid it?

    No you can't delete the "other" file because it has vital information for your iPod.
    It has the Track names, Album art, and anything you ever type in the info section.
    It also holds the names of applications and applications themselves.
    Since iTunes doesn't and can't classify Hacked Applications.
    Deleting the "other" would delete everything you need on your iPod mostly what I said above.
    Trust me, you don't want that to happen.
    You just can't avoid it.
    All you could do is just minimize it. Meaning your song names Delete them album name album art and lyrics.
    You'll have less "other"

    Are you serious? delete the others section?
    Nah man, if there was a way, i'd send it to the center of the Earth because that practically kills the software that the iTouch runs on. All music, apps, and video settings lie on the "others" category.
    Plus installer stuff falls into that, too.

    Yo GuY, i'm assuming that you have MxTube on your iTouch?
    The video files are stored into the "others" category.
    lol I have MxTube and i had about 1.73GB of "others" category, due to downloading my favorite vids on YouTube.

    Someone PLEASE hack iTunes already so it shows whats really on your ipod
    >Music
    >Videos
    >Pictures
    >Other
    >Applications

    That would be hella sick...but totally impossible.

    This is one of the smartest thing I've heard in a while.

    Since most people just Hack iPod's they have Forgotten about iTunes.
