Default Lossless supported?

I've noticed myself downloading more lossless music files lately, like Flac and ogg files.

Does the Sony S-Series support these files? If not, is there a way to easily convert them to mp3 so they will play on your device?

iirc none of the Walkmans support Flac or ogg files. As for converting them to MP3...you could try using foobar2000 to convert them to LAME.

quintets_man is correct, no FLAC support on the Walkman players. Ogg is a container...do you mean Ogg Vorbis(lossy audio), or Ogg Theora(lossy video)? I'm assuming you mean Vorbis.

As q_man said, foobar2000 will convert FLAC to LAME mp3.

I actually didn't know there were two different kinds of ogg files, but I meant the audio.

Awesome, thanks guys. Much helpful.

As you may like to keep the best sound quality, you can also convert your lossless files to uncompressed Linear PCM .wav files that your Sony should be able to play well. But of course .wav files are big and use a lot of disk space. So over 192kbps Lame mp3, Nero AAC, or even WMA files could be your best quality/size ratio choice for your Walkman.

Default Mediamonkey

If you use mediamonkey you can auto-convert lossles files to mp3's when syncing, just set a conversion rule in the menu. That way you get to keep lossles files on your pc while enjoying the mp3's on your walkman.
