    Is the memory limit on iPods a imposed or physical limit? it seems to be imposed because when I was syncing it gave me the "iPod is 1.46 GB over capacity" or some other ridiculously high number but it was not missing anything, it had all 9.whatever GB of data on it. *8GB iPod touch. :apple:

    I'm not sure about the error, but I believe the limit is physical.

    If it was imposed, people would have figured out how to buy an 8GB iPod and hack it to use all 32GB instead.

    Definitely physically limited, there would be no reason to waste money on the company paying for 64GB chips and then limiting them as a 8GB model, when it would be much cheaper for consumers and the company to buy the 8GB chips instead.

    Physical, hence the reason why 8GB models of something are cheaper than 32GB of something.
