I know there are tons of ipod threads on anet and I really couldn't be bothered to search them all. I did however try to use google to solve my problem but with no success.
I bought an 80gb ipod classic the other day. succumbing and conforming to the ipod craze. When I connected it, I noticed it said 74.3gb avaliable. Now I know hard drives etc usually have a small amount of space unavailable but I've never seen something that's stopped me using 5.7gb before! So what is it for and how can I get it back? it seems a bit excessive to me to be some kind of buffer.
