Let me explain...

To further explain; right now I have a 16 gig SD micro card in my phone, I have music ebooks, pdf, word, excel, and hundreds of roms already stored. I want to include a slew of other media too, like movies, tv shows, and a few audio books. As it stands right now the audio books take up the largest portion of that card. Seven books equal almost 7 gig.
I figured that I should spring for a 32 gig card (which I have), but even then 7 gig is still a large portion.
Now, I know I could repeatedly overwrite the files with other books, if I wanted to, but keep in mind that Flash memory isn't flawless, gates fail. The more you write Flash the more chance a gate has to be frozen, limiting the expanse of the storage.
I didn't forget to backup my audio books. I chose not to backup the original wav file. For many of us a high rate mp3 of music is just as good, even though I don?t agree. I have all my original music CDs. However when it comes to an audio book a wav file far exceeds overkill. My audio book collection as of right now is over 120 gig, and that is just at a rate of 128kbps, if I had backed that up as lossless wav, I would be looking at hundreds of blu-rays and the death of a blu-ray writer.
All of my audio books are now in circulation with my District Library, so I can still get a hold of them if worse comes to worst, but that could take months.
If I can EASILY negotiate this task, I will find myself with the same seven gigs of space filled with 28 large audio books instead of just seven or the same seven audio books but have them only take up 1.7 gigs. I don?t know about you guys, but I really like the prospect of carrying around with me as much entertainment and utility as I possibly can.
