No more space on your iPod? Need to remove some songs from your library? Relax, there is a simple way to make room.
The explanation: MP3 files are all different bitrates. The larger bitrate songs have higher quality sound, however they take up more space. The difference is hardly noticeable even to a trained ear. Standard CD Quality is 128 kbps. This tutorial will allow you to reduce all of the songs on your iPod to 128 kbps in order to save space. [Note: This does not change the quality of the original music file on iTunes].
Step 1: Open iTunes
Step 2: Plug in your iPod
Step 3: Click on your iPod, under Devices on the lefthand panel.
Step 4: Under options, check “Convert Higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps AAC”
Step 5: Press Sync and allow iTunes to compress your library and add the songs to your iPod. [Note: The process may take a while]
Whah-la! Enjoy the extra space!
