I'm having problems with audible books myself but I think I can help you with your problem. The audible website should have demanded that you download the audible manager. When you open this program (if you haven't already done so) you need to add your device from the menu on the left side of the screen. Follow the directions (I don't think I need to walk you through that) and once your device is now listed in that menu on the left side of the screen right click on it and select activate device. It will then prompt for your audible user name and password. Having done that your device should play the file if it is indeed audible compatible. if that doesn't work you're sol.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

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.
I think this has nothing to do with the philips mp3 player and more to do with the audible website.
Each installation of AudibleManager will need to be registered with Audible.com in order for our
audio books to play through the software. If the audio is going to be transferred to a device or
burned to CDs, each device and CD burner must be activated as well. A total of 3
AudibleManager installations are able to be registered to 1 account at 1 time. Each installation of
Audible Manager may have up to 3 devices/CD burners activated at 1 time.
have u done this?
The "AA" file type is not supported in the NWZ MP3 players. However, you are still able to place audiobooks onto your player if you convert the file to one of the supported file audio formats: MP3. WMA, AAC-LC, and PCM. Remember that there are several iterations of MP3, such as variable bit rate and frequency range and the player does not play some of them.
What I do is that I pull the file into Audacity and convert it there. Another option is that if you can burn the audiobook onto a CD, you can then rip to WMP and then sync it to your player. That is how I get my language audiobooks onto my player. The last option, which I have never tried, is to get it into ITunes, then sync it to your player that way. ITunes will automatically convert the file before syncing it onto the player.
It does not support Audible. I have funny insider information on this - Philips originally planned to make it Audible compatible, and even added an Audible folder. In the end, they didn't seal the deal and sent out players that were not compatible with audible, but have an Audible folder in them. LOL.
A workaround is to download audiobook files in mp3-only format. You won't be able to use them like an audiobook, but they will be available for lsiten.
When you download your Audible audiobook, it should also download a program called AudibleManager. While in AudibleManager, play your audiobook. When you do so, it should ask you to log in using your Audible name and password. After you do this (you don't have to listen to the whole thing), you should be able to upload it to your device with no license problems.
Instead of dragging the audiobooks to the "music" folder, drag them to the "audible" folder - this player only gives full functionality for audiobooks if you are using the Audible audiobook svc. Otherwise it will play the audiobook as one long mp3 file swithout proper chapter breaks, etc.
Perhaps your audio book was from audible.com. They use their own audible format ( .aa instead of .mp3) and only certain mp3 players can play .aa files. If the book is in .aa format, go to www.audible.com and check to see whether or not your player is compatible with .aa files. If not, you're outta luck.
I had the same problem and was able to resolve it using the procedure (listed below) from Audible technical support. It's wordy, but the long and short of it is that you need to activate the Nuvi on a PC machine, then you can use it on the Mac. To transfer files, open iTunes audiobook window, then drag your books of choice from that window to the Nuvi icon on the desktop. I had no problems using this procedure.
Thank you for contacting Audible.com. On its behalf, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience and I am most committed to satisfying and resolving your inquiry to the fullest of my abilities.
