WHAT IS THE BEST FORMAT (WMA OR MP3) AND BIT RATE FOR THIS MP3 PLAYER?

Can you help? What is the best format to use on this mp3 player, wma or mp3?  It will  be used for excercise, so perfect sound quality is not needed.  My purpose is to add as many songs as I can on this 1 g. player.  I have music in my computer as wav files, but I need to convert them to wma or mp3 before I add them to this player.  Can you also give me a conversion rate to use when I convert them. 
Please consider that I am a new user and I need specifics.  THANK YOU

There are many variables to consider when you are choosing a format.

The bitrate is most important, it effects the sound quality.

Roberto has some files listed for you to compare.

GETTING CERTAIN SONGS DOWNLOADED TO MP3


The problem may have been caused by how some options in the ripping software were set.
The WMA file may be protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM).
Always rip the WMA files without DRM protection.
The constant bit rate (CBR) parameter for the WMA file may be too high.
Get the file from another source, or re-create the WMA file with CBR (constant bit rate) up to 192 kbps.
The WMA file is created in a lossless format.
Avoid creating WMA files with the lossless format.
The WMA file may be encoded with WMA 9.2 or later (such as WMA 10.0 Professional).
Make sure the WMA files are encoded with WMA 9.0 or earlier.

assuming you have a factory radio... They will only read certain formats... (probably wont read mp3 or WMA). You will need to burn your cd properly.

Nextar MA933A-20P will only play factory installed files.Music files add are present but will not play. Will only shuttle between classical and fast dance files


The following may help:
1) Ensure that your Music files are of the correct format (usually .MP3 or .WMA suffix and usually NOT .WAV which is the standard CD format)
2) Ensure that you upload your music .MP3 or .WMA files to the correct directory and names are not excessively long as some MP3 will limit the max name length. If you know a working song on your MP3, locate the directory it resides in and put your songs there. 3) If you have uploaded your songs with the correct naming convention/suffix and you now see them in your player list but they will not play, then your MP3/WMA file has non-compatible 'property' whcih is usually the encoding 'bit rate' (usually anything under 128mbps fix rate is good but you can see what is acceptable by looking at the 'properties' of your working songs that are on your MP3 player) ps. To reformat your Music files to the player acceptabel format, you need to download and use a 'Audio Media Converter'.

Every time when i transfer the song from my pc to mp3 it shows format error


The only format that your player supports is as follows: MP3, WMA, ATRAC3, and ATRAC3plus. So if you try to transfer an audio file that is not in one of these formats then you will get an error. Look at the properties of the file you are transferring and verify that it is one of those file types mentioned above. If it is then make sure that the bit-rate of the files is not too high...some players do not play the very high bit-rate audio files or some variable bit-rate files.
