    I don't have one but I really want to get one...so I was wondering how many people actually fill theirs?

    I think if I had a 10gb it would be near full.

    More stats:

    Songs: 6517
    Capacity: 27.9 GB
    Available: 1.4 GB

    Songs are now a mixture of 160 VRB MP3 and 128 AAC. Am in the process of re-ripping the entire collection to fit at least another 1000 songs.

    I don't leave home without it.

    i've got a 10-gigger, and about 17 gig of songs. plus, i always keep about a gig free on my ipod for files etc (i use it a lot for work).

    i want a 30 gig ipod! but i don't like the look of it as much as my old-style 10.

    I have a 20gb iPod, on which I keep about 10gb of music. I use the remaining disk space for quick backups and transporting large files. It's really nice to have the extra room available.

    my humble 5 Gig is stuffed to the max. i'm always manually moving stuff around to make room for new tunes. man, i remember when the iPod first came out, i thought "wow, i could NEVER fill that thing up!". a year later and i've got a 24 Gig iTunes library to manage. ;)

    10g here.

    1738 songs
    2.4g left
    All mp3s at 128kb

    I figure that I can still fit another 650 or so songs on there. I've gone through my entire music collection and put darn near everything that I thought was worthwhile on the ipod. Still have a number of cds that I don't want to put on as I feel they would only waste space.

    650 songs is roughly 50 cds (at 12-13 songs per) I don't buy (or d/l) 20 cds a year so I still have at least 2 years worth of room left IMO.

    If I had an ipod, it would be the 10 gig,
    and it would be 1 gig full of music, and then 9 or so gigs of pirated media like tv, comedy series, movies :)

    I've got 5.4 gig on a 10 gig iPod, 4 gigs free for DVD source files and audio stuff, it varies. Around 950 songs.

    All files 160kbs AAC, sounds better than the 320kbs MP3's I was using, in half the space.

    I tend to throw a new set of albums off the AlBook at the weekend, I've got around 20 gigs of audio on a Maxtor firewire drive.

    Songs 458
    Capacity 13.9GB
    Available 10.3GB


    422 songs encoded at 256kbits (mp3)and the rest at 128kbits (mp3).

    Why are others converting their songs to AAC? And if i have my songs at 256 already can i do the same, if so what software do i need?

    Many people I know find every CD in their house, like 'em or not, import them into iTunes and then show of with their music collection.

    But I only keep the music I listen to and then use the remaining space for docs.

    9.28gb Capacity
    4.65gb Free
    4.62gb Used

    I have about 8 gigs out of 13.9 (15 giger) free. What can I say? I don't have that much music, only about 1200 songs, and some of those are audio books and spoken word files.


    I still have plenty of space! Yay!:D

    thats what I meant when I said I have cds that IMO would just waste space if I put them on my ipod. I have probably 60-70 cds that I could literally throw away and would never miss, as I will probably never listen to them again. Alot of those were the "buy for 1 song I like, the rest of it sucks" cd.

    My iPod:

    Songs: 916
    Capacity: 27,9 (30 GB)
    Avail.: 23,7

    Still re-repping into AAC. My old iPod (5 GB) is stuffed 100%, I plan on emptying it and using it in the car with an iTrip.

    A lot of audio books for me, to. Only problem is, the iPod doesn't seem to like to handle 12-hour files really well:rolleyes:
