Hi, just had a strange thing happen. I've deleted a load of videos and playlists on my iphone 3g through itunes.

However the free space show is not increasing, but I am getting an 'other' section that is increasing in size. Does anyone have any ideas what could be going on?

I've tried disconnecting it, restarting it, syncing etc etc but still no joy.

Try this:
Alternate Click your iPhone on the sidebar, and choose Back Up
Then restore from that back up.

I had a similar problem on my Mac Book Pro, running out of room and deleting things not helping. I made a Time Machine backup, then restored from it. Fixed it.
