Hi, Archiver. I just tried making a set of Snatcher Mp3s with the software you linked to. I still don't see how your files ended up being only slightly above 40 megs. Mine are still well over 60! Ok, here is exactly what I did: -First, I ripped the CD tracks to WAVE files (16bit, 44.1, stereo) using Audioactive (I know you used Exact Audio Copy, but it should make little difference with WAVE files. And Audioactive is a bit faster). -Then I converted to Mp3 using the LAME program you linked to. I just used command lines, no GUI. I converted to 192kbs, high quality (keeping the default joint stereo). My command line for LAME thus looked like this: lame -b 192 -h "Snatcher XX.wav" "Snatcher XX.mp3" When all was done, I was left with 20 Mp3s totaling 64 megs uncompressed. You say your set is under 45 megs? How? Would you mind going through what you did step-by-step? Many thanks.
