iTunes Downsampling

Does anybody know how to set an option in iTunes that automatically down samples anything you drop onto your Nano? All my mp3s are 320KB/sec, but my Nano can only handle about 1/10th of my mp3 collection at this size. I’d like iTunes to downsample everything I drop into it so I can pack more music on my Nano.

  1. It will work but you will need to convert the MP3 files using the AAC encoder reducing it down to 128kbps. Go to: Edit–>Preferences–>Click on the Advanced Tab and then the sub-tab “Importing”.

    More information can be found by clicking on “iTunes and Music Store Help”. Seach for the word “importing” and there is a whole section devoted to “About MP3 custom import options” which you might find useful.

    Good luck.

  2. I’d buy a second iPod before forcing myself to listen to everything I own at 128 kpbs.
