The advantages of digital audio are quite numerous. However, the incredible selection of new music implies that you are going to be quickly amassing a large collection of music. This will need to be stored somewhere, and without proper planning, the collection could become disorganized and take over your hard drive. By understanding some key elements in storage, you will be in great shape to enjoy your music for today and tomorrow.

Step 1: The bare minimum
The hard disk is the quickest and easiest way to store your music. If you have a relatively new computer, then you probably have a hard drive of several gigabytes. This should be a minimum when considering a move to an extensive digital music collection.

Step 2: How many songs per gigabyte?
Every song will be different in size due to song length and the bit rate used to encode them. A rule of thumb is around 325 good quality songs per gigabyte.

Step 3: Upgrade the old drive
Even if you have an older computer with a sub 4 gigabyte hard drive, you will be pleasantly surprised when you look at today’s hard drive prices. You can find 12 gig hard drives for $125 which will keep around 3900 songs on them.

Step 4: Keep a music only drive
If you want to keep the documents and programs on your current drive, you can add a new drive and keep only mp3 files on it. If you do this, consider the bargain you are getting. A jukebox for thousands of songs for the price of a single disc CD player!
