The first thing I can think of is if the song tracks are longer?

Ok, I just tried importing a CD, it's gone down automatically from over 600MB to 116 MB - now what does that mean?

What are you using to copy music from the original CD to PC? Check the encoding/ripping configuration.

Edit:
IIRC, you're a Mac user. Check these settings: Posted Image

Well, MP3 for the most part is smaller; but I was also interested in the bitrate.

When you rip the CDs you can change the file size (quality) when converting to MP3

You may have bitrate set at 320 or above. 192 is fine.

Bumping an old thread. If I don't have many of these CD's any longer (scratched, lost), how can I make these files smaller once they're on my computer? They are 45mb instead of 7mb or so.

Thanks


What format are they in? They should be in an mp3 format to be compressed. Otherwise you need some software to convert it from whatever format they are in now. I don't know what the mac uses for big files, like the PC would use a wav. file.

Mp3


Each single song is 45mb???? Or a whole album? On average an mp3 is a mb a minute. I think if they are single songs that you could run them through a converter again and lower the bitrate.

Yes, each song.

Are they all 320?
Did you use something which uses LAME and rip at 640?
LAME list free soft on their site which you can use to rip/convert.

This is weird. I just checked and see that many of them are .aiff, not mp3. Hm.

I think you can convert them to mp3 in iTunes.

Can anyone tell me if this is what I need to choose for my iPad settings on iTunes updates?

Conver higher bitrate songs to 128kbps AAC

That may help.
