Yeah - I understand that I'm one of the few that insists on non-lossy compression.

I'm mainly annoyed that the New iDrive does not support a lossless codec like Apple Lossless or Windows Media Lossless.

Like you, I've also found that the New iDrive will play any MP3 or WMA format (i.e. bitrate, CBR, VBR, etc.) that I throw at it, with the files on a DVD-ROM. But, no PCM WAV from DVD-ROM - only from 6FL.
