SSIA... any idea how i can find what it is not recognizing ?
Items that you deleted from the Library but not the harddrive?
Are you using SL? iF so, finder uses base 10 but iTunes uses base 2, so that would account for the difference.
Ah, but it is the "about-face". Finder would show less and iTunes would show more.
Not true. The base 10 number would be larger. Look at hard drives that are 500GB in base 10, they are less in base 2.
look at the pic i just posted.
Your pic doesn't show anything, look at it, one says MB one says GB
To the OP:
Finder shows 81Gb. which is 81*(1000^3) bytes
iTunes shows 75Gib which is 75*(1024^3) bytes.
These are the same number of bytes (approximately).
The Finder box on your screen shot is showing the available disc space so doesn't prove your point.
Dang it. Read it too fast.
No, the Finder will report a larger iTunes library than iTunes will tell. Just remember, because of Snow Leopard everything is bigger in the Finder.
However, I would venture to guess that there are movies and television shows in the iTunes library that aren't showing up in the Music section of the library, you have to add up the different source lists in iTunes to get what the Finder reports.
Actually, if you look at my calculations above, I don't think anything is missing.
ok guys, corrected my mistakes, and posted a new pic.
Right, sorry. I was thinking about the pre-Snow Leopard days when you had to add up each source. Now you're just messed up, because of the stupid Finder.
Thanks swiftaw, I think you are right.
One thing that does perturb me about SL is how values are reported differently across the OS. One example being my original question. Another being activity monitor reporting only 3.75 gigs of ram (I am running 10.6.1 on a late 2008 15" MPB with 4 gigs of ram.) I assume this is because the 9400m is using 256mb of system ram for video.. but the discrepancy is still there when running the 9600 discrete graphics... possibly something related to openCL on SL?? (10.5 reported a full 4 gigs)
