View Full Version : What have I done to my Ipod???

Aug 30, 2005, 02:20 AM
I've used my Ipod (6gb mini) as a hard drive to move lots of files from my old PC to my new Ibook. The thing is, now I've moved everything across and deleted the files off my ipod but it's saying the availible space is only 1.6gb but my itunes is only using 2.3gb. I dont understand whats taking up the space.

Have I messed something up???? :confused:

Have you emptied the trash yet or ejected and remounted the iPod. The files won't be truly deleted, and space restored, until you do that.

Of course, it must be on the desktop/plugged in for the trash emptying to work. :)

If you think thats bad try formatting a 40GB iPod with NTFS.

It sounded like a good idea at the time.

Yep, just tried plugging it in. Still no change. :( :( :(
Ohhhhh, what have I done.

Well if you have deleted everything and have all of your music in iTunes just use the latest iPod software updater to restore your iPod to factory defaults. It will format it and make it good as new.

Yippy, Can that be done without being online for the update?? I've got no internet connection for my ibook yet and this is a work computer i'm using so cant use it for down loads?

You don't have to be online to restore the iPod but you may need to download the latest software (http://www.apple.com/ipod/download/) online.

Umm... Why am I replying if you're not going to be online to check my reply in the first place? If a tree falls in the forest and it's mad, would it be Jewish too? I'm just going to go back to bed now. :o
