View Full Version : Ipod fills up with undeleteable "Other" files

I only use my iPod for music, and it always seems to fill up with files itunes classifies as "Other" & they remain behind after I delete all music off my ipod. I can delete it by using the ipod restore feature in Itunes, but it gets annoying having to do that all the time.

I usually use winamp for everything, but when I buy music from the itunes store I just use itunes to transfer it rather than switching back to winamp

Has anyone else had trouble like this with their ipod?

You sure its not just how WinAmp is filling up your iPod? Are you using the built-in iPod library or ml_ipod?

If not, it may be worth looking in to:

I'm using the built in ipod library. I thought it was supposed to be better than ML_Ipod?

It is a Common problem (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=246912) - have a customer who has the same thing, usually GB's in "Other"-- Seems its a combination of cover art, notes and junk, Resetting the Ipod back to factory default usually clears it, then you resync the ipod back to the songs you want.
