Napster has today introduced a new version of its music download service incorporating wider support for many digital audio devices.

The new software lets users of a range of devices drag-&-drop tracks from Napster directly to such devices.

Company president Mike Bebel said: "It is extremely important the digital music experience is easy and fun for all music consumers."

Napster's use of the Windows Media format for its tracks has been widely reported. Microsoft's Windows Media division general manager David Fester said: "Many different devices that use Windows Media Audio are available today." However, Apple's non-WMA iPod still dominates the MP3-player market.

Roxio's music company also announced new pricing that lets Premium subscribers buy music in bulk for "as little as 80 cents" per track.
