    Can anybody tell me why my iPhone storage summary doesn't seem to match what's actually on the iPhone?

    For example, the summary says this:

    Audio: 10.36 GB
    Video: 2.03 GB

    However, if I click on my iPhone, and then click the Music tab it says 8.54 GB and the Movies tab says 1.32 GB. Audiobooks only has 100 MB, and TV Shows is empty.

    Where is the missing space?

    Here are some screenshots to explain what I'm talking about:

    For audio, I'd imagine some of it goes to cover art. Videos, not sure.

    Can glitch sometimes. will sort itself out most likely - saw this a week back. moved some music in, some out, a movie deleted, and it was showing the right figures again. Go with the phone stats for now.

    That happened to my iPod Touch. I've no clue how, but all I know is that it'll sort itself out.

    EDIT: I think some of the space has been used to store the cover-art i guess. but imo, the cover art wont take up much space. :) or maybe the iTunes is just screwing around with you. maybe a restore can help me "recalibrate" the storage meter :p

    clearly didn't read the thread. also I have to add you should have blacked out your mobile number. So, best delete that picture

    yup. looked thru the pictures and I've edited my post.

    TS should blank out his phone number since it's reflected on iTunes
