does a minidisc only have 150mb of storage space?

Yes, that's about right, depending on the disc recording time - 74 minute or 80- minute.
The minidisc ATRAC compression system reduces the size by around 5:1 compared to raw "CD Quality" data.
There was also a later "Hi-MD" disc type that stored a gigabyte of data or 90 minutes of uncompressed CD quality audio, or up to around seven hours of 256Kbit ATRAC - but they only work in Hi-MD machines.
