Default ".oga" and Apple Lossless - will the J3 play them?

Hey, mangs. Nice forums you have here; very resourceful seeming indeed.
Anyway, I should be receiving my J3 any day now and I was wondering if the abovementioned file types are supported by the J3?

My decoder ("X Lossless Decoder") exports ".oga" files when I choose to export as FLAC/split up FLAC files using .cue, for whatever reason. If these aren't to work, will changing the file type to ".ogg" fix that? If not, could anyone point me to a reliable (preferably free) decoder that uses .cue to decode FLAC files?

I plan to use the J3 via Windows, but most of my music is already stored on my iMac, so being able to use Apple Lossless would be very handy.

Much thanks!

OGA is an Ogg container, presumably containing FLAC codec in your case. I have no idea what Mac apps can convert that to regular FLAC, but I sure hope there are some. The J3 reads regular FLAC, but not in an Ogg container. Same for ALAC - just convert it to FLAC to be compatible (I don't think anything besides iPods and Rockbox support ALAC). On Windows it's easy, just use Foobar2000 to convert any of that stuff.

As far as I know, XLD can create proper FLAC files as well, maybe you just have to tweak the settings a bit.

Thanks, dfkt. My dad has a windows-based laptop, so I might just use Foobar2000 on that. Transferring tunes may be a bit of a chore, but it'll be worth it. I really don't want to run into any Mac-associated problems concerning Cowon devices; they sound needlessly painful.

And I'll give XLD another go (unless you know yourself how to do it? )

Anyway, much thanks for the help!

DbPowerAmp can also transcode music files. The benefit is that you don't have to open an application;when you install it ads "convert to"(and "edit id tag") to the right click menu. You also get a batch converter which can trascode every file in a folder (including files in sub-folders). You can also convert one file into several different formats (choose muti-encode after choosing "convert to")
