Hi,

Whenever I sync my iPod Touch with iTunes so I can view my photos on the Touch, iTunes makes another copy of each photo in a folder called "iPod Photo Cache". I have a small hard drive (80gb), and this really takes up alot of space, considering I have like 9gb of photos.
Do I really need this folder? Why does iTunes have to downsize the photos, I'd rather they just stay full-sized and take up more space on the iPod.

Can this be done?
Thanks

it has something to do with resolution and size. the ipod had to make sure they are 1:in a compatable resolution 2: the right size and 3:are the right file format

I figured this, but something that has always bothered me is, if images are converted to be the right size, why keep the originals on the iPod too?
