The iPod supports the following formats: AAC, MP3 (Constant and Variable Bit Rates), WAV, AIFF, Audible, and the Apple Lossless Encoder.

iPods do not directly support Windows Media Audio (WMA), but iTunes can easily convert to the iPod-compatible format of your choice.  See this iPod 101 article to find out how.
