I rip at 128 kbps in wma format for my two pocket size "mp3" players. 128
kbps is fine for mp3 players.
I choose wma format in case I want to use the music in a Windows application
such as windows movie maker or windows dvd maker/slide show. Wma format
always works in these Windows applications. Recently I had trouble using mp3
format in WMM and Wdvdmaker because of a codec conflict from a 3rd party
application. Until poster Zach had helped me clear up that problem I used wma
audio files as a workaround.
The final decision is yours. Try ripping at a few different rates and
formats and decide which format sounds best to you.
