Question

Compressing audio when synching in Windows Media Player

I've got a ton of MP3s that I want to export to a USB stick. For the life of me, I can't find a place in Windows Media Player to compress the audio when synching. iTunes has that feature and it's super convenient, but 1) I can't use the USB stick in iTunes, and 2) I can't find the compress feature in WMP, so I'm stuck. Anyone have any ideas?

I think they have a version for Windows too. It does various conversions, captures video from desktop, and other nice features.
