    Yea so I spent a better part of the weekend going through my songs, updating ID3 tags, adding album art & deleting older stuff.

    So I go to reload my 512mb Shuffle and found out just how much space adding album art (typical 300x300 @ 20kb) can bloat a file. My personal stuff is ripped @ 256kps in Apple's AAC format, sounds very nice and no hint of compression on all my various songs. Most of my other "aquired" stuff is in the 128-192 range and sounds decent.

    So typically, the Shuffle holds about 105 or so songs as a mix between my stuff & the other songs. Just my collection it holds about 90.

    But now with all the artwork added it holds about 85 songs when mixed. :( Oh well.
