Question about RCA M4204 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Can't load audiobooks correctly

I've uploaded an audiobook to my PC as a zipped file. I unzipped it and copied the file containing the various chapters of the book into my RCA M4204. The audiobook doesn't show up in the Audiobook section but the individual chapters are shown under Music.

How do I get these books over into the Audiobook section?

I cannot listen to an "audible" book on my sansa player. I get the error message "please activate device with audible manager to play this title". I don't know what audible manager...


"Audible" books are copy protected to prevent unauthorized copying or sharing.
Download the Audible Manager software from http://www.audible.com/sw
When you load that software and sign on to your Audible.com account, you will be able to sync the information into the Sansa player that will authorize the audiobook to play on the Sansa.

Audiobooks sound like they are being read in fast forward mode. Song are good, just the audiobooks? Can I edit the audiobooks somehow?


Yes you can. Here are the steps on how to edit an Audiobook:

1. Find an audio-editing software which has the editing features you want, and download it. Audacity and Adobe Audition are two popular choices (see links in Resources).
2. Transfer the unedited reading of your audio book to your computer's hard drive (if necessary).
3. Open your audiobook file from inside your audio-editing software. Many audio-editing software programs come with automatic file conversion capability so that when an audio file is opened, it's automatically converted to a medium that the program can work with. If your software doesn't have this capability, you'll also need to download audio converting software. Choose software capable of converting the file type of your original recording to a file type supported by your editing software.
4. Play back and listen to the reading of your audiobook. Stop the playback in areas you'll need to edit, such as a word or phrase you stumbled upon, long pauses that should be shorter, extraneous talking, bodily noises or the sound of paper rustling. You can insert rereads of certain passages, silence or reduce the volume of loud breathing and background noise.
5. Save the reading of each chapter of the book as an independent file. Saving the entire book as one file will make indexing the book much more difficult. If the editing software you're using has a multiple track feature, you can copy and paste each reading of a chapter to its own track and save each track as its own file. If your editing software does not come with a multiple track feature, you'll have to keep a master copy of your audio reading then create a copy of this master. Open the copy of your audiobook and delete the reading of all but one chapter of the book, then save that one chapter. Keep repeating this pattern until all of your chapters have their own independent file.
6. Listen to the edited reading of each audiobook chapter all the way through to make sure that you've performed all the needed adjustments.

I have a Philips GOgear SA5285 and I can load the audible audiobooks and they go to the audiobook file but when I load my library books from Netlibrary.com they load as songs and do not have book marks, so...


If you are a newbie, and you primarily want the mp3 player for audiobooks, then go ahead and take this player back to the store - I'll tell you why:
The deal between Audible and Philips fell through before the latest series of GoGear's was released. Therefore, even though the player has an Audible folder, it will not properly play Audible audiobook files. Sad, but true.

Your post reminds me that I need to write a Consumer Watch article on mp3 players that claim to play audiobooks - 90% of them will not easily allow you to play audiobooks - you will have to jump through hoops.

If you still want to try, here is what you want to do:
1. Delete any audiobooks off the GoGear, but make sure that you have a copy of the audibooks on your computer itself.
2. Open Windows Media Player. Find your audiobook files in your library. If they don't show up, then you will have to move your mouse over the Library tab - a small black arrow should appear underneath the word "Library" - click the black arrow and select "Add to Library". Click "Add" and find the folder in which your Audible files are stored. It may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player will add these files to Windows Media Player.
3. Right-click an Audiobook file starting with Chapter 1 of whatever book, and select "Advanced Tag Editor". One-by-one, manually assign an a track number to each audiobook chapter - Track 1 for Chapter 1, Track 2 for Chpater 2, etc.
4. Now, re-add the audiobook files to your GoGear.
5. You might additionally have to go into the Settings menu of your GoGear, and turn Shuffle mode off - your user's manual can show you how to do this.

Sound like a lot of work? You betcherbottom dollar it's a lot of work. This particular mp3 player is not the best for audiobooks.

Audiobook to ipod


That is the problem. iTunes will only allow you to put audiobooks in that section if they were bought from the iTunes store. It's very annoying, but i suggest just making a playlist to hold all the files. iTunes doesn't let you set the type as "Audiobook" for files.
