    I am asking because I have a total of 50 gigs of music in my itunes library. I have an Apple Lossless version on my but also have a down converted AAC 320 version in order to play on the Playbook. When I sync my itunes library to the 64 gig Playbook, it ends up taking up 50 gigs worth of space on it. I was expecting to see the music library taking up much less space than that. I don't see doubles of songs but can only assume that the Apple Lossless versions somehow get synced onto the playbook.

    Can anyone confirm that this is what is happening?

    Looked up file sizes and got the following numbers.

    What are the differences in filesize?
    For MP3
    A 3 minute song at 128 kbps will use approx 3MB. (poor quality)
    A 3 minute song at 320 kbps will use approx 7MB. (excellent quality)

    A 3 minute song at Apple Lossless will use approx 15MB. (perfect quality)

    Since iTunes downloads are at 256 kbps according to the reference using higher quality number on these will not help,

    Is there a simple way to prevent the PlayBook from syncing the Lossless files that it doesn't support?

    In the desktop manager you can select the playlists you wish to sync. You can leave out the playlists in apple lossless files.
