Hm, 2 GB of uncompressed stereo music with 44100Hz and 16bit can
contain about 12174 seconds (2147483648 bytes / 44100 / 4) of music.
This are 202 minutes or about 3.4 hours.

If we assume a FLAC compression of about 1:2 (see
http://flac.sourceforge.net/comparison.html ), 2 GB of FLAC compressed
music are only about 7 hours. Or am I wrong?
