Going to get into some portable audio in the near future (Creative Zen?). Won't be Apple. What format should I use? I am looking for the best quality of sound, but it must be very simple to use. I am going to reproduce about 400 CDs that I own and put them on to the portable device.
What software should I use? What rate (64, 128, 256)? I assume that all of my classical will not transfer well enough to actually be enjoyed (is this true?).
As you can see I am a complete neophyte .. please lend your expertise!
