4gig is indeed a lot but it is probably the software that's on their as someone noted above. Sad to say but thats how it is with all Ipods.

I see people workout with their ipod videos and I cringe.
Not only are the ipod videos expensive, but they are essentially a hard drive that is being jarred around like that on ppls arms/waist.
I have a shuffle I use for working out, so I don't have to use the video.

As with any HDD, formatting takes up space. This is on top of the OS that would be included on your ipod. You will never have the advertised memory available on a fresh HDD.

If you take off all of the preloaded games you can get some of your space back, but besides that, it's the OS.

Its not the OS that takes up the space, its drive formatting.
In hard drive terms 1000 bytes = 1 kilobyte. In computer terms 1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte. 1024 kilobytes because formatting the drive for use by PC's requires this. This is about 2% loss. As the drive gets bigger, more information is needed for formatting so the bigger the drive the more you will lose. A gigabyte = 1 trillion bytes to a drive manufacturer but 1,073,741,824 bytes to the PC. This is about 7% loss.
