    I'm looking for a program to compress an mp3 file down some. I'm trying to lower the file size from 3 megs to <1meg. Any free programs?

    mp3's are already fairly well compressed... getting a 3mb mp3 to 1mb is gonna be tough w/o quality loss. try zip/rar/tar.gz/bz2

    zip may yield 5% decrease if you're lucky. Your only hope is to decrease the bitrate drastically.

    You can reencode it using EAC and LAME if you want to a lower bitrate. That'll take down the size of the file by a ton.
