3.2. Other Podworthy File Formats

The iPod was designed to handle AAC and MP3 formats the most efficiently, but it's not limited to them. Here are the other types of music files you can play on an iPod:

3.2.1. WAV

WAV is a standard Windows sound format, going all the way back to Windows 95. (Most Macs can play WAV files, too.)

A WAV song usually sounds better than the same song in MP3—but takes up more room on the iPod.
