hmm... It's the cellphone shock. Don't throw a stone at me, I'm just pointing that if you need the great sound, get yourself an Shuffle. Smile

Way ahead of ya on that one, Kvazz. One gig 'shuff, biatch! AND a Mini. Smile

Rip the CDs all over again directly to WMA. WMP10 an do it.

I don't WANT to rip all my CDs to WMA all over again, kvazz. I got literally THOUSANDS of tracks. It would take forever, sry. Sad

Re-ripping also doesn't help me at all with the part of my collection that is iTunes downloads... they would have to be convered to WMA, and them being converted to would cause a loss in sound quality, since again, WMA is lossy.

These are pretty obvious issues that you think VZW would've thought through before goin' this route.

I can only surmise that Microsoft arm-twisted them into disavowing non-WMA audio formats due to the stupid little war that Microsoft is fighting against Apple and iTunes. And Verizon went right along. Woopie. Sad
