    How many songs on 2 gb?

    Advertisement



    How many songs can I put onto a 2 gb micro SD card? I understand it all depends on length of song, and quality. I just want an average figure.

    2GB holds around 1000 songs encoded in MP3 format at 128 bitrate.

    Yep... that's about the average. I've already done away with my 2gb iPod Nano since my Pearl now has a 4gb card holding a ton of mp3's and several entire episodes of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent".
    Who needs an iPod when the Pearl can do just about everything and iPod can, and more?

    Can I store ringtones on the card as well? I know that I can't store apps on there, but what about ringtones?

    Ohs yes! Ringtones, songs, pictures and videos. It's a nice little media fair.

    Should I use AAC or Mp3?

    I know all mine are MP3. Not sure if aac works on the pearl. Is that not a apple format.

    It works on there. So does .wma. I am just wondering what is the smallest size file, but still with good quality. I think that .wma might be the best option.

    So i got my new Pearl today!!!! It's still in the box for I have this fear of somehow screwing it up! So 2gb is good for a few albums, misc songs, and whatever else finds its way to my Pearl? If 2 gb holds 1000, then 1 would hold 500 songs? Im just trying to figure out what would be the best for me. I highly doubt I'll put 1000 songs on my Pearl....Anyone know the $$ difference?

    I store 320 kbps quality and my 4 gig holds 800 so a 2 gig would hold 400 and a 1 gig would hold 200.

    aac is not an apple file, its just another audio format for protected mp3's

    Average price on a 1 GB card is around $25, average for a 2GB is $40, depending on where you go and when you look you can find them cheaper. I got my 1 GB from http://www.meritline.com/ a bit back for $9.99. Just have to look around a bit.

    I have put AAC files onto my 8100 and they play fine. These are AAC files that I ripped onto my Apple and not ones purchased though iTunes (which have copy protection).
