    hey, i sent out a search to find something related to this, and dunno if it's been encountered before.. sorry if it's a repeat of a previous post but i couldn't find it. anyways,

    i have a new 30 GB ipod and love it, but a friend of mine has a slightly older model of a 20 GB ipod and also has a mac computer, but for some reason it will only fit 600 songs on it even though it's not using up all the gigabytes. :confused: has anyone heard of this before or know what i'm talking about at all, and/or know how to fix it? i'm gonna screw around with it some, but i thought i'd ask before doing too much with it, thanks

    Either:

    A. He has a lot of data files on it (i.e. back-up of some important stuff)
    B. His songs are uncompressed WAV/Lossless
    C. His iPod's hard drive is borked

    im sure his songs are hugh files. Get a compresser and go at em. I just had 6gigs worth and made them 128 instead of 320 and now im at 4 gigs.:p
