    Hi

    I have been using my 4th gen iPod to transfer movies between my windows pc and my mac computer.

    It has been working fine for the longest time, but I am now running into space issues...

    I put the movie file on my iPod on my pc. I connect the iPod to my mac and copy over the movie. I put the movie file in the trash can. I then go and reconnect the iPod to my pc. The movie file does not show up, but the space it used is still occupied...

    Eg. 400mb left on iPod. Transfer 400mb movie to ipod, put on mac. Put file in trash, return to pc, and there is no space left.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance

    you forgot to empty the trash, the files will still be hanging around in a hidden .Trash folder on the ipod i guess.
