I've got the 16gb ipad mini. WHen i sync it to itunes, it says I've got 13.8gb free ..... which is fine because 2.2gb is probably used for the OS and others~ Here's where it gets tricky. I've got a photo album that only cost 660MB when i right click -> 'properties'. However, when I sync that particular photo album to my ipad using itunes, it says I've now got 11.40gb free which suggested that the supposedly 660mb that was initially imported to the ipad suddenly becomes 2.4gb What's the meaning of this? I just got cheated 1.74gb by importing that file. Or perhaps is there a program that you guys can recommend aside from itunes with regards to this file transfer to your ipad thingy?
