What do you compress music files to? and when do you start wasting hard drive space if you are just running the default audio on a board?

I know people are gonna laugh, but I run at 128Kb/s Mp3. I really can't hear a difference past that point.

Plus with well over 2000 songs its nice to save the HD space.

I am doing mine at the highest quality right now, but if a lot of people say otherwise, then I will prolly switch to a lower quality.

if you can hear a difference then that is what you should go with, HardDrives are pretty cheap right now so there's no reason to worry about runnning out of space

Hey, "100 CD's worth" is still a lot of songs!

Man, I'd hate to spend the time rippin' 100 CD's, then decide that I didn't like the way I structured the song tags!

I guess this is a little off topic, but its my thread.

Do you guys use windows media player, or is there something else out there that is better and free.

Go to the windows update website and download/install them manually.
