Quoting P at draigBrady.com:
you will need firmware with some of the new irivers to be able to access them in
rumour has it iriver are going to switch to their own proprietory system, they
have also made wierd moves, like disallowing transfer of material from their
players to a computer.(using their proprietory system)
obviously if you get the usb mass storage firmware for solid state players this
gets around the problem.
ogg support only works within certain bitrate ranges, if the vbr jumps outside
of that it will break, I cant remember the values off the top of my head but it
was for reasonably high (224+) and low ranges(32-), the middle ranges are safe.
I have also heard that the quality of ogg playback can be poor.
recently I bought a solidstate muvo 1 Gig, its pretty cool, except that it uses
fat 16, which doesnt support long file names, can be annoying, apart from that
im very happy with it.
I guess if you want a HD player, have a look at what creative labs have to offer
in that line.
