music file types

What file extensions can the USB port read? Is it MP3 only or can it read wma or other formats ?

that's a good question, I wonder if FLAC would be supported. That would be pretty awesome for the audiophiles out there...

Yep...good question.

As far as wanting to play WMA files, why would you want to play those? They are huge file sizes and would take up much more room on a memory stick vs an mp3.

I know you asked what are the other file types and I'm sure someone will respond. However, as I'm sure you know, there are file converters (such as "switch") that are free and downloadable from the internet. That's what I use to convert my cd's that I download onto my hard drive. They are downloaded as wma's to the drive and then I convert them to mp3's.

It should be able to read all formats because the Ipod i be leave uses MP4. But as Tag said WMA file are huge. Just use a converter to make them MP3s

I've found WinFF to be the simplest, fastest, best-quality converter. It's actually a GUI front end for the command line tool ffmpeg, which works really well.

However, there's nothing inherently wrong with playing WMAs. If you don't have the original in a lossless format, then any transcoding from WMA to MP3 will lose a slight amount of quality. WMAs I've seen are no larger than equivalent MP3s.

So, to answer the question of why someone would want to play WMAs...that'd be if you've got WMAs and no lossless version to encode from.

I think you are confusing WAV files with WMA files. WMA files are not so large as WAV files.
WMA encoded form lossless FLAC files are far superior to mp3's.

Use the following program to convert any format to any format, Its freeware.

I've always found the interface in that program to be just awful.

Here's a much easier to use program that's free (in fact, it's open source):

every single person that is running windows, and want to convert store bought CD's to mp3's can just use Windows Media Player. Start the program, Go to the "Library" tab, go down to "OPTIONS". The options box opens up. go to the "rip music" tab, at the top you can select or brouse and select the folder you want to always have your music ripped to, then below that select MP3 as the file type. and at the bottom the audio quality. Then jsut rip away....works like a champ.

If people are having issues with file types. Use a program like Switch to convert your media.
