You could convert the files down to 128kbit but I agree the best option would be to convert the music files to VBR.
Don't worry too much about loss of quality, especially if you have an CL Audigy which will compensate for low quality in Music files.
WMA's have a nasty metalic sound to them I can't stand I will never use them. if u want to save space try converting to MP# pro I do believe u can get the PRO plugin for winamp 3 if thats even what you use.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
