    I have a sony icrecorder that records mp3s. I want to put the lectures on my iphone, but the only issue is that each 50 minute lecture is 90mb large. Is there a way I can dramatically decrease this so that it will be reasonable to have all my lectures on my iphone

    If you use iTunes: After recording, import and then in Preferences > Import Settings > choose a lower bitrate. For lectures, you don't need high quality. 48 kbps will sound okay. Then right click the file and "Create MP3 Version." Then delete the original file.

    There are a lot of other programs that do this as well.

    Especially if he chooses mono (as he should).

    even at 90 MB, you can still fit at least 80 lectures on your phone..
