Have you ever tried a double blind ABX test? Foobar's ABX plugin is a good tool to evaluate these things without placebo effect and confirmation bias getting in the way, for example. I'm sure with a little testing you would find a size/bitrate of a lossy codec that you can't hear a difference compared to the original.

About 25 cd's in WMA lossless took up 5 gb's. With FLAC, I'm gonna get about 10 cd's per 5gb's.
No way is the size difference between WMAL and FLAC that extreme. Difference between the codecs is about 2% on average, not 150%. Something obviously went wrong there, sounds like you either put uncompressed WAV files on your player instead of FLAC, or you used normal lossy WMA instead of lossless.
