Okay I do not know the right amount since I am not on my PC to see. But I have a little less than 200 songs and already 800MB of space or so is taken up. Remember give or take a bit since I am not looking at my computer. All my music is just regular length songs and all 192KBs - 220KBs. They are .MP3. I was wondering is that a lot of space already taken up with less than 200 songs? I do not have an iPod yet I am just setting up my iTunes with the music I want. So if this is too much space for so few of songs is there a more compressed format iPod reads or a way to convert this mass of songs all at once to a lower bitrate like 192KBs since I know a lot of songs are above that or mayber below 192KBs? I just do not want the quality getting poor. I ordered the iPod classic 80GB and I know that is a lot of space but I am just thinking for down the road. Thanks everyone. I couldn't get the right numbers since I am on my PS3 typing this on a keyboard, sorry.
