"Other" is usually the iPod firmware, plus cover art and any other files you have stored on your iPod.

ye, i thought it could be somthing like this... but there's no artwork.... surely the firmware wouldn't take up one third of the ipod.......... would it?

I own a classic so I can't comment on the nano - try posting your question in the nano thread and see what response you get there.

Its artwork, any files you have stored on the iPod, notes, contacts etc, but also lost music and video files that may have become disconnected from the database (eg if the database has become corrupt, or something strange has happened during a sync). Try a restore of the ipod and resyncing it.

ok, i'll hit restore, i'm asuming this will only wipe the songs from the ipod, and not itunes....

I have 18GB of Other

I dont think this "Other" is artwork or contacts, because I have 18gb of other. I have added all the music, movie, and pictures. I think its another one of the bugs that is going around with the firmware upgrade. I have tried to restore, and even re-installed itunes and its still there. Well see what happens when the new firmware comes out. As far as not being able to restore, try disconnecting your ipod and try again. Hope this works.

Apple secretly Squirrel away porn on your ipod. If you stick in disk mode, you can find it. :)
