I’ve loaded a bunch of music on my iPod, but the Available Indicator is still showing that I have gigs of space left?


This Available indicator on the iPod has always been problematic. On some iPods it works fine, on others it doesn’t work at all.  There is no workaround for this other than using the program you use to upload with as your indicator of space left on the iPod.

I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
