How many songs can you put on a 64gb Ipod Touch?

  • Best Answer:

    People often speculate about this Topic, but in reality: The average amount of songs that can be placed on 1 GB is 500 songs (aprox 3 - 7 min each).

    Most iOS devices use about 0.5 - 2 GB of the actual flash on the device. So that means that you really have about 63 or 62 GB (subtract anything else you want to put on it too).

    500 songs : 1 GB
    31,500 songs : 63 GB

    I will estimate that you can put around 31,250 - 31,500+ songs on you 64 GB iPod Touch.
    It also depend on the the bit rate of your music.

    Higher quality (bit rate) music tends to take up more space, which may affect the amount of songs you can have on your iPod. I have two versions of the same song: one copy is about 3 MB, and the other is 7 MB.

    I hope that helps!

  • A LOT. The true answer really depends on many factors.
    The three biggest are.. length of song and how they are stored.

    1. how long are the songs.. that is really variable as a four minute song would take twice as much storage space as a 2 minute song.
    2. how you want your songs stored... You can have either super clear perfect sounding music with a high bit rate or you can have good music at a lower bit rate, or you can have super low bit rates and have your music sound like it's coming out of a tin can. Bit Rate is how many data points or bits are stored for each moment in the song. more data points mean more information to store thus a bigger file. So if you are an audiophile with super duper good hearing listening to an opera and want to hear a pin drop in the audience during a quiet moment of the song, you probably want a high bit rate. If you are listening to pop hip hop or rap, a lower bit rate will sound just fine.

    3. drum roll please... How many apps and how much data each of them store on you ipod. Lots of people forget that the operating system itself and all the contact, email, text messages, games and apps they have on their ipods take up space on the ipod. So if you use it for stuff other than songs... all that 'other stuff' takes up space you can't use for songs.

    You can do the math yourself...
    An average song imported at 256 kbps AAC, which is the high bit rate format used in the iTunes Store, takes up about 8.2 megabytes for a four minute song.
    You can cut the bit rate to 192 kbps and that will cut the megabytes per song in half.

    Also remember even if you only do songs... a 64 mb ipod will actually only have about 59 gb available for storage (the rest is taken up by the operating system).

  • Since i have about 400 on my ipod and it takes up about 2GB i would figure about 12800 songs
