    I want a FREE program. This minimal 200-220 songs on my MP3 player isn't cutting it. In .WAV form the player can hold around 400 songs which is more acceptable.

    So where can I find it?

    Why would you want to do that? .wav files are WAY bigger than .mp3 files.

    thats what i was thinking. wav files are barely compressed. maybe if you kill the quality like a mofo they could be the same size.

    actually the reverse should be true, you should only be able to fit like 150 .wav files ,and like 400 .mp3's

    I meant WMA, lol.

    I never can find the song I want to hear. And I'd cut a bit of qaulity to put more songs on it.

    you don't have to drop to wma to drop quality.

    drop your 160+ bit rate tracks down to 128 or lower. they will sound like shit, but hey, its what you want :p

    128 still sounds okay through low to midrange headphones.

    Same for low-end speakers. If you're listening through anything that puts out decent sound, def. 160+ bitrate.

    Thats what I've been using, most of the songs are something like 192 or whatever.

    I rarely use it through headphones. 97% of the time I use it in my car, 2% is used for uploading and the other 1% is headphone use.

    Ugh. Minimum 192 for me... 256 or 320 VBR if possible.

    if i had a more space, I would only DL the highest quality. But 1G is actually really small.

    I recently got some super dank headphones and now I can't stand to listen to anything under 192. Even 192 sounds kinda washed out some times; I always try to get 256+.
