+1....it wouldn't take more than a couple of minutes to convert it....if you must have lossless, then convert it to FLAC.....easy as pie. Of course, it would have made more sense to rip it to FLAC to begin with.

No, this format is not officially supported by the P3.
I don't know where you read it plays WAV files but it's just a mistake.

Both the abi review and the samsung page say that the P3 plays WAV files.

Actually WAV is not officially supported because some WAV files work (I tried several ones) and others won't.
Maybe that doesn't change anything for you but that changes many things for Samsung, particularly for the Quality department.

The Samsung page says
Quote:
Supports MP3, WMA, Ogg, AAC, FLAC, ASF
Are any of the other formats only partially supported?

In the time it took you to write that you could have converted about 5 WAV files.
