Finding Out How Much Space Is Left for More Songs

If you’re wondering how many more songs you can fit on your iPod, here’s a quick way to find out: From the Main Menu, scroll down using the Click Wheel and choose Settings. Then from the Settings menu choose About and press the Select button again to see how many songs are on your iPod, the total capacity of your iPod, and how much space you still have available for songs. To play it safe, you can figure an MP3 song takes up about 4 MB of space (an AAC-encoded song, like ones downloaded from the iTunes Music Store, takes up a little less). So, adding 125 more songs would take up only around half of 1 GB. So if you see your Available amount is something like 12 GB, you can load a few thousand more songs and still have plenty of room left.
