    So I have been trying to free up some space on my ipad. Looking at Settings>General>Usage>Storage it shows that my Photos and Camera are using 969 MB of space. The problem is I have zero pics on my ipad. No videos either. Nothing in the camera roll at all. What is stealing almost a gig of my storage? Any ideas?

    iPad 3 (Retina) 32GB WiFi & 4G (AT&T)
    iOS 6.0.1

    Thanks!!

    Ben

    Tap on the Photos & Camera entry for a further breakdown of where the space is going.

    Camera Roll
    Albums
    Photo Stream

    iPad storage issue with the photo app

    It is showing all that is being used by the photo library. But as I said, there are no albums or pics. Very odd.

    hmmm.

    With the iPad connected to the computer and selected under Devices in iTunes, make sure that Photo syncing is turned off, then sync.

    I will. I won't be able to get to my computer until the first week of December. I will report back though.

    iPad storage issue with the photo app

    No luck. iTunes thinks it is gone, as it shows no photos on the storage breakdown when plugged in. But when I look under settings-general-usage it still shows 969 MB being used by the photo library. Odd. I suppose I will try a restore to see if that will cure it.

    Ok.

    Be sure it's saying MB and not KB. The library will take up a little something even with no photos in it.

    It says MB. Oddly if you take a pic, the 969 MB goes from Photo Library to Camera Roll. I think a restore will fix it but I don't wanna give in!
