So recently I bought a 2 gig MP3 player. It said on the box that it could hold around 1000 songs. So I uploaded some songs on there are only got around 350. What the hell!? Are you supposed to convert the files into a smaller file type or what? Because I'd really like more songs on my MP3 player.
Om nom nom nom!

thats just a general number, say if your songs are around 2mb each, just look at the size

heh, as far as my music colleciton is concerned
I'd get about 280 songs onto 2 gigs

Sure, you can listen to 1000 songs.

1000 songs running in the ****tiest quality.

or 100 two minute Misfits songs

Do you really need more than 350 songs on your MP3 player at any one time? I, for one, am always changing the music on and off my MP3 player because I tend to get sick of it.

Most mp3 players, the amount of songs is estimated to be:

A.) Under 4 minutes in length for each song
or
B.) Each song is a certain size.

My mp3 player can hold 7500 songs, but due to long tracks and bigger file sizes, its only got ~3000, with the mp3 player 4/5 of the way full

search for a program called dBpoweramp, it's a sound file converter you can use to size down your mp3s

the lowest bitrate i can live with is 128kpbs

For 1000 songs to fit on that thing, it would have to be all really really short songs, or compressed at 64kbs.

I have a 2 gig Nano - I think I have about 285 songs on it packed full. I listen to lots or prog. rock/metal so longer songs, plus I rip everything at 192kbps so its a higher file size.

Sony's mps players come with "Sonic Stage" thats converts file sized to about half without comprimising too much quality - but who really needs 1000 songs on the go anyways. I have ADD and 285 is more then enough to allow me to flip through songs every few minutes

well, taking 128kilobits per second


(2 gigabytes) / (128 (kilobits per second)) = 36.4088889 hours

(36.4 hours) / 1 000 = 2.18400 minutes


so you'd fit 1000 two minute songs (which is probably the length of an average pop song :-/ ) if they were all encoded at 128kbps

They mean you could get on 1000 songs of the lowest possible quality, and if they're all 3 minutes long.

Quote by catchy phrase
This is why I hate it when people measure size in terms of number of songs.


I didn't buy it because it said it could hold 1000 songs. I've heard other people have gotten that many so I was wondering how the hell they did it.
Om nom nom nom!

at a glance
lame seems to be able to go down to 8kbps

and some rough calculations, that means like 8000 songs (however, it'll sound like 1920s radio)
