I have a huge library. I used windows media player to rip most of my cds to my computer. I was wondering if there was another format that would save space, but minimize quality loss? Any suggestions?

This is just a comment: if you ripped and compressed at 128 KBps you are not too much concerned with quality. Also, transcoding will reduce mediocre to pretty bad. Why not add a second drive, or replace what you have with a larger one??? cool.gif

Let's just say there are better choices out there. Have you looked at this audio format guide?

I would re-rip; to just about anything but WMA. And I would re-rip at a higher bitrate than 128Kbps. Your easiest solution, whether you re-rip or not, and the cheapest, if you put a money-value on your time, is to just buy an external firewire or USB hard drive. External drives are less than a buck a gig. Internal drives, less than 50 cents!
