You know I've never really explored the mass amounts of audio formats out there...
I guess I can't complain about MP3s
and also MPC files are good...
then u have wave files.
I think i like MPC files tho.

Because I have to switch back and forth between win and linux, I never use WMA. Besides.. I hate Media Player.

Why do I keep thinking of the .ogg format as the Aaron Aardvark Format?

i use MP3 because of the small file sizes and popularity, most things here are heading towards MP3 playback n so on so i use that cuz just about anything will play MP3. that and i can fit more songs on one CD so thats more non-stop music!!!! i totalled all my heavy metal music (my favourite stuff) and there is nearly 30hrs of music there!
