    Hi there,

    I have been having a problem with my iPod touch, and wondered if anyone has also came across it as well.

    Every time I connect my iPod touch, or video to my Mac - I always get the error message: "The iPod (iPod name here) cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the data, x GB required, x GB available".

    Now I know what you're thinking, just trying to sync too much stuff, right? Well, no... I only have my music library (+ Music Videos) synced with my iPod, and it only accounts for 5.5GB, I also have a few apps, around 1GB. Yet my iPod still says it cannot sync and my only option is to manually sync, and this is the same for my other iPod as well.

    Just wondering if you had come across this problem yourself!

    Dylan

    Do you have an 8GB touch? Remember, the drive is sold in metric gigabytes, not binary gigabytes, which is what iTunes counts your Library as. There is also space needed for the OS. After all that, 6.5GB of stuff filling an 8GB touch doesn't sound that unreasonable. If you have a 16 or 32GB model...uh.....double check to make sure you aren't trying to sync a bunch of movies or TV shows?

    It's a 32gb touch, and a 30gb iPod video which this is happening to.
