How can you compress files using my computer? (or windows explorer). Is that in the properties? I am asking this because I sometimes don't have that many files on my mp3 player, therefore the compression can be decreased. Sometimes its the other way around.

Here's something which surprised and pleased me very much today. I sincerely dislike overprocessed MP3 files, and, perhaps because I'm a musician have a genuine aversion to files which have been dramatically time-compressed. Today, though, I needed to cram as many Audible.com books as possible onto a one-gigabyte card. I can generally expect to transfer about a dozen before the card becomes full. Well, I time-compressed eighteen files using a setting of 1.1 (the lowest available setting) and pause-compressed them at a rate of 65% (a moderately high amount.) Those eighteen files actually fit into a space which normally holds around a dozen. They don't sound too processed, and the pause compression was so judiciously done that I hardly notice it. If you've never before experimented with altering the absolute size of files, especially based on immediate need, work with those compression tools and you can achieve an overall effect which might make you very happy, while reducing the size of those audio files quite markedly.
