    I don't think the question is all that important but its really bugging me. I tried google for about 20 minutes and got nothing.

    On iTunes it shows that I have 3.02 gigs of music, but when I plug in my new iPod Nano, it shows I used up 3.07 on my nano. Is this normal?

    I'm not sure, but I think before I uploaded a file I forgot to add after my first batch, it went up .06g. This file is only 7MB. Could this be the reason? Again, I'm not sure if thats what I actually saw.

    :(

    The iPod's software plus the overhead of the filesystem is taking up the extra space. Don't worry about it :)
