KevinJS said:I have an iPhone4 and an iPad2, both 16Gb. I have a huge music collection, so I'm considering adding an iPod classic to dump all my music on so I can keep the other 2 for apps.
Kevin, in effort to save some space on your iDevices, have you converted your music to 128 KBPS? It reformats the file and somehow uses less space while not sacrificing the quality of the music. This will maximize the amount of music you have on ur iDevices while not trading off space/GB.
If you haven't done so, at least give it a try. Here's how:
1. Connect ur iDevice hardware to iTunes.
2. Select ur iDevice on the left side of iTunes.
3. Go to the Summary tab
4. Scroll down to Options.
5. Place a check mark in 'Convert higher bit rate songs to AAC.'
The reformat takes a few so make sure to do it when u have time on ur hands.
As an example, I have a 32GB device and my 2200 songs only take up a little less than 8 GB. Without converting the files to 128 KBPS, it would take up approximately 15.5 GB. So I have all my music, room for more apps, and I notice no discernible differences in quality of my music when I'm playing them on my headphones. And I'm not just using the standard issue earbuds that came with my devices.
But then again, I'm no audiophile. But then again if I were, I'd be using much more expensive equipment.
