When transferring an eAudio book from OverDrive, I consistantly get the error message: An error occurred while attempting to transfer "Cross-Part01.wma" Error details: Unable to transfer the selected title because [Insert3] returned 0x8004c031.
I don't get the error when transferring to a different Sansa Clip 1 meg player.

Not true!!! The Sansa Clip is actually the best mp3 player I have found for listing to audiobooks. Here is what you need to do. Download the latest firmware update on the Sandisk website. You must do this or it just won't work unless you are downloading books from Audible.
I use the Overdrive Media Console and download mp3 and WMA books from my state library. When you hit transfer, be sure it hit advanced options. Browse until you select the audiobook folder on your player. Then transfer to that.
The player will bookmark your last place on anything that is in your audiobook folder. You can easily switch back and forth between your music and book without losing your place! Love it!
Had the same problem - used this solution from ehow.com at this web address: http://www.ehow.com/how_5180421_troubleshoot-sansa-clip-mp.html Worked and now I'm transferring my book from overdrive - hope it helps. Reset the Clip by holding the On/Off switch in the On
position for approximately 20 seconds. Release the switch, then attach
it to the USB adapter to charge it. This process can help when the Clip
does not appear to be working at all.
I report a solution from Portable player FAQ, let me know if it works: 1. Delete the title in the Overdrive Media Console program. 2. Then log into the Audiobook site at http://e.hbpl.org and click on My Account, My eItems Checked Out, and click the Download button the website to re-download the book. 3. Transfer the newly downloaded parts to your player.
I was afraid of that. The file that you are trying to load has a DRM license on it that has a fixed-term license. It will play on your player for about a wekk or so, and then it is unusable except on the computer itself.
Most mp3 players that claim to support audiobooks don't really support most audiobooks - or don't play them correctly. Audiobooks that are in mp3 format (as in, NOT Overdrive) will give you the fewest problems.
Some audiobook services have fixed-term licenses of 1-year - at the end of the time period, you have to resynchronize the audiobook files to the audiobook service itself.
Here is an interesting clip from the Sandisk forums on this exact issue:
Overdrive library books have DRM-encryption to make them stop working at the end of the loan-out period unless you renew them. This means your player must be set to MTP mode.
If your player intentionally or un-intentionally got switched to MSC mode, that would prevent the DRM content from being loaded onto your player and account for the error message.
Had the same problem
I fixed it on my e260. The solution: Drag and drop the mp3 file directly into your media player, skip the overdrive 'wizzard', you need to find the folder where the media is stored.
