I have an iPad2 running on iTunes 10 on OS 10.5.8 on a MscPro

when I delete a few movies, it says I have 'other' space available ( yellow ) and not 'free' space.

I updated to os 6.1.3 but that didnt seem to help. is there a way for the 'other' space to become 'free' space?

many thanks

If its refusing to let you refill that space, I'd back it up and restore it.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

it seems to do OK if larger 'chunks' of data are removed. but thats a good tip!

many thanks!
