    So I found the complete Brawl sound track (I'm not telling you where I found it do to that I would probably get in trouble), but I have a problem...There's over 2gigs worth of music on it and my mp3 player only has 1g(and only about 600mb available) Is there a way to compress the Mp3's so that I can fit it all on my Mp3? Thanks

    you can use itunes to convert them from high bit rates to low (like 128k)
    for headphones... 128k is very good! even for excellent headphones :yesnod:

    i even use 128k on my stereo.

    Are they actualy MP3s or Flac files? If somone has ripped the soundtrack from a DVD, they usualy end up in Flac files if they know what they are doing.

    If they are MP3s, use anything that incorporates a LAME encoder and you should be fine. LAME is pretty solid at keeping the sound quality when reducing file size. I use it when I compress my WAV files to MP3s

    Even if it was Lossless, that's still "only" ~700MB per CD. 2GB? That sounds like a 3-CD, Lossless rip!?

    If they're in MP3 format, even at a high bitrate, that's a HUGE amount of music (talking like 20+ CD's worth).
