  1. What is the better audio format? I was looking at mp3 players at future shop and they had MP3 players where if the songs were in WMA format the player will hold more. But an MP3 file is smaller. And is there any diffence in sound?

    The size of the file has nothing to do with the format - the resulting file size depends on the encoding quality. The perceived difference in sound too depends more on your hearing ability and the encoding method and not the file format.

    If you want really high quality sound then you should look for players that support Ogg Vorbis, FLAC or Musepack files.

    So I used Advanced WMA workshop to convert the files is that a good encoder. And how hard would it be to find an mp3 player that suppoted OGG files?
