I have looked all over the (extremely outdated and small) wiki for something to explain what the "Other:" files are on a device such as an ipod. My guess is these are pictures, notes, etc., that's just logical, right?
So the problem is: on a 4GB ipod, why are there 642.6MB of "Other" files? To be clear, it's only MM reporting this. Going into the device and manually looking, there's under 15MB of other files actually there and the music folder itself reports the actual space used. MM DOES, however, report the correct free space at the top. I just don't know why the bottom graph is so far off on everything. Is it looking at something else? I have no clue. Here are screenshots to clear up anything you could possibly confuse with what I wrote:
Using v4.05 on Vista 64 bit SP2.
On a side note, it kept crashing when I went to do anything to the ipod so I tried floola's repair ipod function and it worked again. Why doesn't MM have this feature? Not sure what it fixes, but I was able to use MM again. I happened to notice that a bunch of songs went missing after adding a few, though. I'm not sure if it's an error in the code when running out of space or if it's a residual effect of floola. Floola had a tendency to "lose" music, which is why I came across MM as an alternative alternative itunes manager.
