    I've noticed that on iTunes, it clearly says of my library: "33 albums, 1.6 days, 7.47 GB"

    I have my entire library on my iPhone. Yet when I plug it in, the meter at the bottom says "Audio: 4.8 GB"

    ...Anyone know what's going on there?

    Thanks.

    Is it skipping some stuff because the items are in a format the phone cant play? It will do that silently if you clicked the message and ignore future once.

    Do you have any music videos? Those will show up in your iTunes but not as audio on your iPhone.

    Ahhh yes! It will be the music videos, you're absolutely right.

    Now I just feel silly for not thinking of such a simple explanation :p

    Cool. Glad that helped. I always forget about checking my music videos and wondering why it's overfilled on my phone.
