Deleting non-music files from iPod

Hiya - little help?

I recently used my 20gb iPod as a hard drive to move some files from my old mac to my new one. I added the files to the iPod by dragging them onto the desktop icon. I then copied them to the new mac by dragging them where I wanted them. Worked fine. All up and running.

HOWEVER, to remove the files from the iPod, I opened the desktop icon folder and dragged the files to the trash. Now when I double click the desktop icon it tells me 0 items, as I expected, but the iPod summary in iTunes tells me I've still got 4gb of "other" on the iPod, as if it's all still on there but I can't see it.

How do I locate all this "other" and get rid of it? iTunes only shows audio, obviously, and the desktop iPod folder shows nothing. Where is it all?

Empty the Trash with the iPod still connected. I reckon that's where all your files are.
