If they're .WAV files, then I'd convert them to Ogg Vorbis.  If they're 
FLAC files, then it depends on how much space you have/need.  Given that 
FLAC is lossless (like WAV), an Ogg Vorbis conversion will give you 
superlative quality.

I just thought of a way to convert the lossy-formatted ones (e. g. WMV, 
MP3) so that there will be no further fidelity loss.  Consider 
converting these to FLAC, which is lossless.  The file size will be a 
bit bigger, but the fidelity will remain.  Pretty much all the SanDisk 
Sansa devices support FLAC (and Ogg Vorbis, BTW); I have a Sansa Clip 
that I just love for this reason.

Do you GNU <>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <>--the ultimate 
antivirus protection!
