mp3 file sizes

I have a folder of WMA files [a CD]. Hover the mouse over it and the size is 71.1mb. Open the folder, select all, right click, select dbpoweramp to convert to mp3, job done. Hover the mouse over the new folder and the file size is 105mb! Ummmmm, shouldnt it be smaller ?

No. That would be correct and is why some MP3 players also support the smaller WMA files in order that you can put more tracks on the player

OK Hamish, thanks for the info. ;-)
