View Full Version : iPod shuffle problem; what is the 420MB "Other" file clogging up storage?

Jul 26, 2009, 04:48 AM
Guys, I have a 2nd generation green iPod shuffle with 1GB capacity. It's a great thing, but I've never had this problem.


This is the graph in iTunes, that shows roughly half of the iPod's capacity is used with music, and the other with other files... right?

So why, when I go to the Finder, and look for the 'other' files, is there nothing there to show!? :confused:


Has anyone had the problem before? Anyone know how to get rid of the big 420MB other thing without restoring the iPod?

Thanks in advance.

Ok that's wierd. The problem is now sorted. Something went wrong with the iPod. After a few ejects, syncs, plug ins, rebooting of iTunes... it seemed to work. I don't know what caused the problem in the first place.

One of the mods can close this thread if they like.

Thats what happens when the ipod get corrupted. It can also be fixed by restoring it in iTunes.
