Audio file types on USB

Hey all,

I know that for the '11s and probably earlier, the audio system says it can read wma, mp3, etc., from a USB flash drive. Has anyone tried wma *lossless* with the system? The internal format is a little different as is the compression type. If you have, or if you could, I'd appreciate knowing the results. If it won't, I will need to re-compress my library to a lossy format for use in the car (boooo!).

thanks!

I use a Western Digital Passport drive, USB powered 120GB. It works great. I use FAT32 formatting and WMA Lossless is terrific.
