Depends on what bitrate you rip them at. 128, 192, 256, 320. Also, are you ripping cbr, vbr, or abr? Also, are they ripped to WAV, OGG, FLAC, mp3, AAC, WMA? Alot of variables to consider when estimating the amount of files stored per gig. Most companies use 128kbps as the standard to measure capacity, and it's unrealistic.

At 256 kbps figure on 9 hours of music per gig. At 4 minutes average per song, that works out to 135 songs. At 128 kbps it is 270 songs, and 202 songs at 192 kbps. More songs than these numbers if your songs average under 4 minutes, and fewer songs if your songs average over 4 minutes each.

Don't forget about the people that rip to 64kbps wma and bitch about file limits because they can't have 12,000 songs in a flash player

I checked a whole bunch of mp3s that I ripped using LAME "preset extreme". This collection comes out close to 142 songs per gig.
