I am having an issue with the way iTunes is storing my library - the entire music library contains only 600 songs (1 day, 14 hours, and 36 minutes long,) and takes up 9.40 GB. I just don't see why it takes up this much space. It also appears that the playlists take up way too much extra space - should they take up any at all? I suspect it's an issue of the quality at which the music is stored, but I don't know all that much about it. A playlist of 20 songs takes up about 500 MB. Is this normal? Another playlist of 40 songs takes up 1.45 GB, more than twice as much as the 20 song list... If you have any answers, please share. Thanks.
