How Many Songs Can Fit on a 32 GB Memory Card

  •          The file size of a MP3 is determined by the songs length and the bitrate it was encoded in. We will use an average size of 4-5 MB to determine the size of the MP3
  •          Around 32000MB make 32GB
  •          32GB = 32000MB
  •          32000MB divided by 4 = 8000 mp3 songs
  •          32000MB divided by 5 = 6400 mp3 songs.

From the results we are able to determine that a 32 GB memory card can hold a ton of songs. As stated earlier, the amount held on the card could be more or less; this is all dependent on the size of the mp3.

So if you are thinking about purchasing an 32 GB memory card whether a SD or MicroSD, just realize that you will be able to fit 6400-8000 songs on your device (give or take a few).

Hopefully this answered any question you may have had regarding memory card storage space and your mp3s.
