    Hello, I have 539 songs, with 3.32GB of music, all with album art. Is this normal, to have that many gigabytes taken up?

    I thought that it was a little big high, but I just don't know.

    yeah cause apple takes there statistics off of a 3 min song so some of your songs are longer then three minutes

    Ok, I thought they would have taken them off of 4mb, more common I think, but thanks anyway.

    Ok, so I multiplied 5(539) and got 2695. I think that there is 1000Mb in a Gb, and that is still pretty high. 3320-2695 is 625.

    Yes, but I am at 540 with 3.3 gigs, that is WAY over double.

    ur songs might be higher quality or longer, cause i get mine *ahem* from the internet and they arent always the best quality, plus i rip from cds and i forgot to select high quality songs

    320 kb/s * length of song in seconds = How many kb per song

    amt of kb / 1024 = how many mb per song

    320 kb/s songs take up about ~1 gig for 150 songs, assuming they are all between 2 and 5 minutes..
