    I copied 580 MB of photos to my iPod yet the capacity bar reads 1.91 GB.

    Any idea why this is?

    :confused:

    No one? :(

    What does iTunes or the iPod Touch do to TRIPLE the size of the photos? :confused:

    Do you mean it shows 1.91GB of photos? Or just overall? I haven't had any problems with this.

    Are you sure there aren't any larger photos in there?

    Okay I just deleted all images and re synched them. The result was 1.90 GB in the capacity bar.

    Here are the file size of all the folders I have just synched:

    239.8 MB
    16.6 MB
    366 MB
    24 MB
    188.1 MB
    2.5 MB
    2.3 MB
    10.2 MB
    3 MB
    11.1 MB

    Total: 863.6 MB

    Somewhere over 1 GB has appeared. :confused:

    it has something to do with the photo cache, and itunes resizing the images or something along the lines of that, as far as i know, you can't do anything about it.

    Yeah perhaps it creates a small version but keeps the original for zooming in.
