copying CDs: Best Format?

Scumbag broke into my car and stole all my CDs. My brother said that I could copy his. Eventually I would like to get a mp3 player but don't know which one to get yet. Tons of things on this board, but feel over my head in making an intelligent decision. Thinking about Zen vs iPod.

Regardless, I have installed iTunes and have a Windows PC. Which format should I use to burn CDs? Does it matter regarding the still undecided dilemma choosing iPod or Zen? Eventually would go into the yet unbought mp3 player.

Also I have seen some of the many formats available written about on this board, but are these readily avialable in my computer? FLAC, OGG, ACC.
