    .wav

    "Though a WAV file can hold compressed audio, the most common WAV format contains uncompressed audio in the pulse-code modulation (PCM) format. PCM audio is the standard audio file format for CDs at 44,100 samples per second, 16 bits per sample. Since PCM uses an uncompressed, lossless storage method, which keeps all the samples of an audio track, professional users or audio experts may use the WAV format for maximum audio quality."

    mp3 would be the better choice. With mp3, you can add and remove songs from the cd after you burn it, which is different from WMA or WAV.

    Your quality mostly depends on the original download. If it sucks, then it wont get better. This is why most of the old good download software used to have a rating of the file.

    Once it's digital it stays digital unless you do something like download to audio tape.

    WAV IS BETTER FOR BURNING, WE BURN ALOT OF MUSIC, AND OUR CDS NEVER SKIP, BUT IT ALSO DEPENDS ON WHAT SPEED YOURE BURNING AT. GO SEARCH ONLINE MAYBE FOR SOME INFO ON IT IF YOU DONT FIND WHAT U ARE LOOKING FOR. GOOD LUCK WITH IT!
