Default "Outside Device Parameters"?

NOTE: This isn't a problem with the Stiletto, it's just something I saw that I thought was kind of strange and figured I'd mention it (if anything it's a Windows problem).

I re-encode a lot of my podcasts to low bitrate WMA files to save space on my Stiletto. I put a few on it last night; one at 32, and a few others at 20kbit/s. All at a sample rate of 44.1kHz. The 32 kbit one went on fine, but when I uploaded the 20kbit/sec ones Windows comes up with this dialog box that says something along the lines of..

"This file is OUTSIDE DEVICE PARAMETERS. The device does not support this file format. This file will be stored on the device's memory, but will not appear in the devices interface and will not be able to be played."

It gives you the option of Yes, Yes to All, No, No To All, and Cancel. I figure I'll let it put the podcasts on there just to see if they show up, and whaddayaknow? They not only show up, but they PLAY FINE.

It's a great way to get podcasts onto the device without eating up memory on it, and they don't sound GREAT, but it's not to the point they're not listenable either. I just thought it was kind of odd that Windows said that
I'm a dual subscriber; I get the best of both worlds
I'm also rather open minded; I listen to almost any kind of music out there.
