Hey guys,

just wondering if this has happened to anybody.

I was using itunes 8 quite happily, no bugs at all. But all of a sudden i plug in my iphone, and its listing me as having 6.93 gb of "Other" and nothing else on my phone.... I did have 6.93gb of stuff originally, whats happened to it all!!

Corrupted music appears as data, which is i guess whats happened is a little bug or something. I believe a restore is in order.

I had something similar happen briefly but unplugging it and plugging it in 'fixed' it, cant be sure if it's the same issue, might just have been a glitch for me.

Do people not sync their contacts with their address book?

Even with my crappy Nokia 6120classic, I still use iSync to sync my address book.

I ended up restoring my iPhone, it all dissappeared after that. I was lucky cause my contacts are backed up on my MobileMe
