Removing pre-installed games


Q: My 80GB iPod classic came with games pre-installed which I never use, specifically, Vortex and iQuiz. Is it possible to remove these games only so that the disk space freed up can be used?

– Tom

A: No, the games that come pre-installed on the iPods cannot be removed, as they form part of the iPod firmware package. Note, however, that the amount of space occupied by these games is relatively small compared to the total capacity of your iPod, with all three of the pre-installed games taking up less than 100MB in total.
