.mp3 bitrates

Last response: in Home Audio

Over the years I've converted my CD's to .mp3, @ 256k.

Now that the wife has bought me a Sansa e250, I've loaded my music onto it. While my PC has no problem with the files, I find that the mp3 player has difficulties with the high bitrate.

Are there any reliable programs available to reduce the files to 128k.

By trouble, I assume you mean your 2GB MP3 player lacks disk space?

No, the 2 gig player has more than enough disk space.

Rather my Sansa tends to ignore files that are recorded at rates higher than 128kbps (128 thousand bits per second)

Most I converted at 256k and a few up to 720, the problem is that 1. my mp3 player won't play the higher bit rate files and 2. at nearly 60 I can't hear the difference between 128k and 720k, so why waste the mp3 space on something I can't use?
