Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Ok so my mini has 171 songs on there and it says it is using 5.6GB and I only have 5.0 GB available. Which makes no sense seeing as it is suppose to hold 1,500 songs. Today I got a 40GB Ipod for $199.99 open box that somebody bought and returned it two seconds later. Yeah I can handle that since I am saving $150.

Anyways so I thought ok I will be good to go with that since it holds 10,000 songs. Now my problem with this one is that is has 171 songs as well using 37.1 GB and I have 36.4GB available. Same exact songs too. How can this be?

I am so clueless and I love my Ipod, but I am afraid that I am paying money but yet only getting 400 songs most likely when I should be getting a hell of a lot more. I mean I love my Ipod and hate MP3 players but I am starting to think I may have to get one of those. A lot cheaper and from what I hear they actually hold the amount of songs that they claim.

So any help at all or advice from people with Ipods I thank you in advance.

That is really weird and doesn't make any sense... I have a 15 GB iPod, with 2235 songs, and it says I have 6.1 GB left out of a capacity of 13.8. Could you be reading it wrong? Even though they are called a 5 GB or 40 GB, the capacity is a bit smaller (like mine claims 15 but is 13.8) so maybe you are reading it as how much it is taking up instead of what it really means: how much space there is total if it was empty, and how much space is available.

haha, I was going to say, it didn't seem like it would make sense for both of your iPods to have the same problem! Glad I could help :)
