I just bought an iphone and transfered 1585 songs to it using itunes. This took up 7.5 GB of space. Is that too much? I thought 2000 songs= roughly 2G or am I wrong. Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

It all depends on the size of the songs. I wouldn't worry about it.

Before synching i went thru iTunes and gave all my favourite songs 4 stars and then made a Smart Playlist for only 4 star songs then told iPh only to synch to that Folder. If i need a change then i will make a new smart playlist and synch to that one - saves having to hunt thru 2000 songs i reckon.

That's not really a lot of space.

I have my favourites list on itunes. That list has 2136 songs in it. All at 128kbps = 7.98GB. 1 minute @ 128kbps = roughly 1 MB. So it seems you might have a lot of long songs or you have your songs encoded at a bit rate higher than 128kbps.

Though its not alot of space, that is quite a few songs, probably quite a bit more than I would want/need

There are a lot of factors that can influence the # of songs per gig ratio. Bitrate, length, format, etc

I would recommend sorting your songs by level, you might not have as many as you think. Separate the ones that are not as great from the ones that are really great, this could cut down on your storage space a bit.

That really depends on the size of your songs and its bit rates. You should check
it though because it seems to be too much space for that number of songs.

I would recommend you sort your songs first before transferring them to your iPhone.
It makes it more clear what you are trying to put into your unit.
