I know this is going to sound stupid, but I can't seem to find an answer. I got an mp3 player for Christmas. It will accept both WMA or MP3. What is the difference? Which is better?

Any input to this would be great.

* PS - The reason I got it is so that I can take lots of different music with me when I do travelling

I generally use WMA for my player because I can cram a few more songs onto it in that format. :) Either will do the job just fine.

With my Zen Micro, the battery life is less when running wma files. For some reason it takes more power to run wma files. I suppose it has to do a little more processing. It doesn't seem to be a great deal of difference. It probably goes from a 12hr. battery to a 10 1/2 or 11hr. battery. I've never experimented with it that much. But it's something to keep in mind.

That's curious, it never even occured to me to check if there was a difference. :D
