Alright so I've been using a zen vision m for a little while now, but I finally got an ipod touch and now I want to put some of my songs on it.

The zen's files were mostly .wma format, and needed to be converted in itunes to a file that the ipod can play.

So now I'm letting itunes convert all the .wma albums, and am noticing that 30-40 MB .wma albums are turning into anywhere from 60-80 MB in itunes!

What's the deal with the file sizes becoming larger?? Is there any way around this??

mp3 files are just bigger....30-40 MB shouldn't worry you.... it's when you have 20 GB of music that's expanding that should should be worried... 20 MB is nothing for a modern computer..

Cool, thanks FlyingPirahna

and FightinIrishPJ, it's not the space of my computer's hard drive I'm worried about, it's my ipod's. It's only a 16GB model

I didn't have this problem. I went from a Zen V Plus to a iPod Nano 4G 8GB.

Sorry to bump such an old thread of mine, but I haven't answered some questions

my creative zen vision m (a 60 GB model) had about 49 GB filled up with music, so it's very difficult for me to pick and choose what songs I want on my 16 GB ipod touch, especially when each song is being converted to be about 6-12 MB. I only have 2100 songs on my itunes right now and I only have about 1.88 GB left on my ipod.

I will mess around with the import settings so that I can fit more songs on it

Or you could just convert the tracks to AAC versions? might take a while but its worth a shot as the size is hugely reduced and the quality is kept.
