    yes, you're in the wrong forum. next time post audio questions in the audio forum. there are only two ways to get more songs on your portable mp3 player. 1) get a bigger memory card (which may not be an option depending on the player) or 2) compress your mp3s at a lower bitrate, which reduces the file size, which allows you to store more songs on there. If it were me, I would stick with quality over quantity, but its up to you. I wouldn't go below 96kpbs, as that is well below cd quality already.

    don't know what program you're using, so I can't tell you exactly where the bitrate options are. but you want to look for a box where you can select options like 96kpbs, 128kbps, 160, 192, 256, 320. if you have made your filesize smaller than you have most likely lowered the bitrate, just watch the numbers and don't go too low or you will lose major quality. good luck
