    You shouldnt have a problem with any mp3's. The only potential problems i can think of is with VBR encoded files, or too high/low bitrate encoded files. You may potentially have problems if you use some exotic/unknown encoding engine.

    Dont get confused with windows media wma or itunes tosh either. They're all DRM protected and can only be played on devices that support them (i.e. next to nothing).

    I haven't had any experience on napster since it was re-introduced. How does it work? do you get a choice of the bitrate or encoder?

    I rip at 192kbps CBR and use a LAME based encoder, and have never had any problems.

    BTW, a good cheap site for purchasing music at different levels of quality is allofmp3.com
