If they are 35 MB each, then do the math. Take an average of 4 MB, thus:
256 / 4 = 64
You could get 64 mp3s on the 256 MB card.
Another way to look at it is time:
128 kbps MP3
256 / (128 * 60 / 8 / 1024) = 273 Min
160 kbps MP3
256 / (160 * 60 / 8 / 1024) = 218 Min
256 kbps MP3
256 / (256 * 60 / 8 / 1024) = 136 Min
So, based on the quality of the MP3, you can get 136, 218, or 273 minutes of audio on a 256MB card. But the best way to go (for quality) is a variable bitrate MP3 with a minimum of 128 kbps.
Hope that helps.
