If I may add, I recommend that your music collection should be ripped
and archived from CD using FLAC http://flac.sourceforge.net/.
Preferably using something like http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/ (if
someone knows a Linux equivalent please chime in)  Only if your device
does not support FLAC playback, convert from FLAC to whatever is best
for the device.

Although I don't know if the FR supports FLAC, does anyone know ?
