- Apple Lossless (ALAC) does NOT work unless it's through the iPod
- 48 khz WAV files will NOT work [Rush Moving Pictures 5.1 ripped]

I'll probably try WMA lossless soon, although I'm not sure if it's worth the time since my library is all 320 VBR stereo MP3(min bitrate 190ish).

I cannot hear the difference between high quality (320 VBR) MP3, AAC, or WMA.
I can't even distinguish high bitrate lossy files vs their lossless counterparts.

The odd design decisions between album art from the console but not if transferred to the HDD, transfer only from in glove box, etc. seem totally arbitrary and stupid.
