I have a similar problem. Only mine was more dramatic. Yesterday afternoon i had a couple MB of Other, but last night when i tried to sync it changed to 4.5 GB and it deleted all my music, movies, etc. off because it said it didnt have enough memory. Any suggestions?

It also stores your Album Art and music info. The only way to reset it (and why I use playlists) is to either restore or go to each tab, uncheck everything and sync, then re-check it and sync again...this will put all where its suppose to...kind of like a Disc Defrag.

Good Luck

For those that do not post online...yes. But it is the only way to reset your "other" data. Take the lesser of two evils, its up to you.

Good Luck
