I'm new to using ipods and mp3 players, so I downloaded itunes, and i just uploaded all my music to amazon cloud drive (Free 5GB storage). I noticed that amazon's cloud saves the audio files as MPEG4 audio layer files (MPEG-4 Audio layer) I can't seem to find anything that will play a file like that. Are their any mp3 players that can read/play those audio files? If so, which ones are they? If not, would it be better to just buy an ipod shuffle or nano and use itunes instead of amazon? What about the MP3 players that come with their own marketplace and such? Do I have to install those to be able to play music on the player? Or since I have itunes and amazon I can just bypass that?
Thanks for any help/tips in advance!

From what I understand a Microsoft Zune plays MP4 files, and for MP4 audio, I think iPod has AAC audio which is very comparable to the MP4 format.

Well the Zune Marketplace is an integral part of the device so you can transfer your files, you will be able to import any music you wish during the process. Its quite simple and there is a wonderful Zune community online that Microsoft has setup.

So once I have the zune player, I install the marketplace and can just drag and transfer over files (or at least upload/download music) to it and then just download and or buy more songs? Does zune marketplace act like itunes? Where I buy a giftcard and redeem it for cash on the market place without having to pay some sort of monthly subscription?
