PCM/Wave is wave files 

Ogg Vorbis is .ogg - you could try that
one - very good mp3-like format. 

FLAC is another specialized
compressed format - I would not use this because not a lot of 3rd party
support for it. 

AAC is a sony format and is used with mp4 files 

AMR
is more specialized for Android and mobile devices following the 3gp
format. 

MP3 is a good format and i'll see if it works on my Android
devices. 

Your best bet is still 44.1k 16 bit wave file or you can try
mp2 44.8k 16 bit dvd resolution files 

I will see what works on my
android devices tonight. 

I use Presonus Studio One pro, cakewalk
sonar, sony sound forge and vegas pro 10, gold wave editor and many
other sound editors, but I own a pro recording studio.
