    I have used my ipod to transfer files from my Windows PC to my Macbook.

    I go in and delete the files off the ipod, but when I plug into Itunes and go to the device it shows on the capacity bar that the files are still taking up space.

    Any idea if these files have been deleted and if there is anyway to show that the space is free?

    bump, ive been using it and now its full, is a reset the only option?

    Have you tried emptying the trash, its just a small thing, but it sounds like that could be your problem, at least that is the only one I can think of.

    Not only that, but deleting the trash WHILE the iPod is still plugged in might make a difference.
