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 have a 200GB drive dedicated for music storage and I think it's too small for lossless music.

Agreed. Too small for lossless if you have a medium size collection. That's about 500-600 CD's. I need more than that. On the other hand, if you don't intend to have your entire collection online, then it might be more than enough.
