Best Answer

Standard audio CDs use a sample rate of 44.1 kHz, each sample has 16-bit resolution and there are two audio channels. 44,100 x 16 x 2 = 1,411,200 bits/s = 1,411 kbps. For comparison, the highest bit rate for MP3 is 320 kbps.

A typical MP3 file is 5MB, so 700MB holds around 140 songs. It depends on the bitrate of the song of course.

The lower the bitrate, the smaller the files will be, but the worse the audio quality will be.
