transfer of files from sonic stage to itunes

Followed steps on the forum and transferred files ok. Problem is that a 1G mini disc becomes 20G when moved

Any ideas whats happening and how to overcome it

It may be that iTunes is converting the files to it's own format and the files are larger. I think that, by default, it also searches for the album covers and downloads those as well.

Its probably decompressed the mp3 files to wav, with resulting increase in size
