    How many mp3's can you get on a 256 card? Is there something you can do to compress the files? Mine are 3-5 mb each.

    You should be able to get about two long CDs on one card encoded at 160kbps. 160 is really as high as you need to go if you like great quality. 100k sounds pretty good too and you dont lose much. Your tracks might go down to under 2Mb. If you are into audio books though and are willing to encode in mono at somewhere like 32k you should be able to get 4 CDs on one 128Mb card. I did this yesterday with a 4-cd book using iTunes.

    Re-encode them at a lower bitrate and they will take up less space.

    This should really be posted in one of the "Software" boards.

    Depending on the details, mp3s average about 3 megs, I'd say. So you should be able to fit about 75 or 80 songs on the card. More if you are willing to put up with slightly degraded sound, fewer if you are an audiophile. Of course, an mp3 of a 15-minute classical movement will be larger than an mp3 of a Madonna song.

    If they are 3-5 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.

    I am converting MP3 to OGG and am reducing the size of my files by a third....


    That means alot on an SD card....


    Using a program called dBpowerAMP converter....and quess what its free.

    Quality is better or same.
