I've got 20GB to fill, so I figure I'll use lossless audio. The Karma supports MP3, WMA, Ogg, and FLAC afaik. Will reading such large files require more HDD activity than say Ogg/MP3? I figure that equates to shorter battery life. Is FLAC meant primarily for compressing audio for decompression at a later date to the pure WAV file? I'm torn between Ogg and FLAC, so your opinions are welcomed. smile.gif

I just got an MP3 CD Player for my car, not quite the same, but similar listenting conditions (i.e. potential background noise, lack of real attention to the music, etc.). I'm converting FLAC files to MP3 at --alt-preset medium as it seemed about the right tradeoff between quality and filesize. That's about 5000 songs on your 20gb hard drive.

Edit: You could also consider Vorbis at ~Q5 (although I'm not really sure on average Vorbis bitrates)
