    Hey guys, I have a 5G 16GB Nano and recently I've noticed space is getting quite low due to me ripping all of my CDs to 320kbps MP3 CBR and adding them to the iPod. I also did a test and played all the 320kbps files I had against the ones that were 192-256kbps and noticed the battery life was shorter when it was playing the 320 files.

    So today I've decided to re-rip all of my CDs to AAC 192kbps. Does anyone know what the MP3 equivalent to this would be? Would I be better off ripping at a lower or higher bitrate?

    Thanks

    Don't use iTunes to rip them for starters. The bitrate is fine for an iPod. You could rip with something else and go with V2 or V0 vbr.

    If I was you I would keep my files as is for listening to on your pc/mac and in the iPod options have it convert the files down to a lower bitrate on the iPod itself. This way you get the best of both worlds.

    Use something like EAC to rip to a v0 or v2 file (v2 is probably the best option). Best size : quality ratio.
