Question about an MP3 Player I just bought.....

its a Samsung Yepp YP-N30S MP3 & WMA Player 64MB Memory. I don't know much about MP3 players. I know the avg 4-5 minute song on my comp is 4 MBs. does this mean it will only hold 16 songs? I have it on order right now. Or do the songs compress? How many songs should I be able to put on this mp3 player? Thanks

Yeah, you're looking at about an hour of music with only 64 megs.

Depending on how much it cost, you might be better off getting at 10 or 20 gig player, that has a hard drive in it. Might be a little more expensive, but you'd be able to put a LOT more music on them.

i have a 128meg player and it only fits 20 songs on it and they range from 3-4mbs a song

Looking forward to the road that lies ahead...We enjoy reflecting upon past roads traveled, reliving our adventures through photographs taken and stories penned...Though, it's that next road that drives us onward...that next journey...And who knows where it'll lead?

I just went with a MP3/CD player. Its not compact like the regular MP3 players but I can fit 200 songs or about 17/18 CDs on one CDR. Thats over 12 hours of music and it only cost me $50.

No other posters were flamed, ridiculed, persecuted, belittled, berated, judged or otherwise in the making of the above-posted reply. It is with respect all are asked to observe this and to provide the same courtesy bestowed upon those who have posted and those who will post. Yada, Yada, doublespeak and so forth!

I just bought a Rio Cali 256 mb player and I have to say that this thing is pimp! I've used 244mb and it is right at 4 hours of music, 58 tracks. Cost me $120, lowest I've ever found it with coupon at Costco this week.

I was thinking about getting one of the bigger ones, but to be honest this thing is for workouts and I have friends that say their Ipod doesn't stand up to that kind of punishment. My Rio is expandable up to 1 GB through MMC or SD cards, so it's not that bad.
