My backup drive's music folder tells me it's 83.3GB, but I recently nuked all of my recent iTunes rips so I can go lossless.

Why'd you ask?

I think you ought to go by songs too, since yeah, if I used lossless encoding, I could get pretty far up there. :D Well, if my iBook had more than 40GB of hd space. I have 3750 songs, 13.44GB. I had more, but I deleted about a gig of recorded radio shows because my iPod was getting full.... :( It's a 15 gigger.

I thought it was customary for boys to compare the size of things... :D



Anyway, this girl's tunes take up 36.36 Gb for 3313 songs.
All 320kbps mp3s, want to move to Lossless...

About 600 tracks in already, mostly stuff I've bought since this Mac. I've still got about 600 CD's to put on when I get round to it.

What was the 1st song everyone downloaded from iTMS etc.? (legal paid for downloads only)

Mine was 'It's Raining Men' by The Weather Girls!!!
