Not being able to play 80mb files is perfectly reasonable, and won't affect the friend this is being given to. She'll only use mp3.

A lot of head-fiers have done blind tests between flac and 320k mp3. Without very high end equipment, most find that you either can't tell the difference or that the difference is insignificant. Check out this discussion thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/570621/flac-vs-320-mp3

So I use 320K mp3s on my Clip+ and Clip Zip. Just so much more room for more music. smily_headphones1.gif
