Simple, text and audio files take up less storage space than color video files. It could simply be a case of Soong deciding to make sacrifices to ensure the Data works for an extended period of time.

I can record 1080p HD at 24Mbps on my camera and that would fill up a 64GB drive in 6 hours. So you are looking at 256GB per day and ~93TB per year. So unless Data has a 10 petabyte drive in his skull, he'll eventually run out of memory.

And that's at 1080p. I would imagine the eyes Soong put in are more around 8K quality.
