I have been ripping some cds for my wife's mobile.

Is there an advantage in converting from WMA to MP3?

Does either format require less space?

Hello ened,

WMA uses about half the space of an MP3 file for the same quality of playback, only problem is some MP3 players and home entertainment equipment such as DVD plaers that can play MP3 CD's can't play discs with WMA files.

Thanks for that response LABMAN

I was concerned that MP3 was a much smaller file therefore I was wasting space on her phone.

Her phone plays wma okay som I shall leave well alone..
