Quick Question

if you check the box in itunes that says convert higher bit rate songs to ..... does itunes make another copy in your library or just lower the bit rate on the iphone.

does anyone here use this function? is there noticeable difference between the bit rates that you can choose from I notice it take a huge amount less of space the lower the bit rate(obviously)

The lower version is only kept on your phone as far as I can tell.

And yes, I notice a huge difference. Not worth it IMO.

All of my songs are in 320kbps. I'm not sure what iTunes uses natively, as I've never bought from iTunes.
