You can try out alternative firmware for playing alternative formates. I've been looking into Rockbox (http://www.rockbox.org/
) and it looks to be the easiest to install. It even does MIDI! Ha.
Even with better firmware, you're looking at huge space constraints from using FLAC (fair to say half the size of a WAV?). Why not use FLAC for burning your CDs and convert to medium-quality Ogg for on the road/iPod?
Shorten files were not made to be played back in a compressed format from what I can tell.
