    well, just like the title says, i've just updated my touch (8gb 1st gen) to 3.0 firmware. for some strange reason in itunes as well as in touch settings it says that the capacity is only 7.1gb - 192MB is used, i presuppose for the system files, and available space is 6.9gb. can somebody please tell me what has happened to my touch and where has 1gb gone?

    thx

    its mainly because of apple they say 8GB is 8 billion bytes which its not and they also say formatted capacity may be less, so really its not 8GB capacity its closer to 7GB and part of that is for the OS and such.
