Try downloading the latest firmware upgrade from www.rcaopal.com - hopefully, the update will reload the missing folder in a way that the mp3 player wil lrecognize.

Audiobooks won't go in the audiobook file


when you open My Computer, open the subfolders under music as well. this will show the Audio book folder. Then copy to it by d&d or by <copy> <paste>. If you are really brave try this.
1 right click Start
2. click explore
3 this opens the <file manager> so be careful here.
4. dbble click,< my documents>
5 dbble click <my music>
6 find the audio book folder.
7 find the book files you want to move.
8 click and drag and drop. or click the book files and go to top menu. there should be a <copy> command.
9 click <copy to>
10 browse for Audio book folder find and click ok
Lastly, check the format of the files. If they are MP3 or other windows audio when you select find and add tomy library they will show up in the music folders. To circumvent this jumble up
1 create new play list, name for Audio what ever you want
2 copy files to this playlist. it will then separate them from the rest of your media files and when you play music unless you select this folder it should not play as long as once you move them to the audio list you remove them from the music list by right click over file title and click <remove from list.>
should take less than 5 minutes

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 setting


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.

You cannot drag from one folder in the player to another - you will have to delete the file from your player, and then re-add the file from the computer to the Audiobooks folder

Download audio book


I bought a MuVo V100 specifically because a sister uses it very successfully for audio books. I'm still learning because it doesn't seem easy to do, but she managed fine. So don't assume it won't work for books.

The icons are confusing to deal with but the book will be in the "folders." When you find Library A, you push the button thing IN. Then you scroll sideways until your title comes up.

I've done it myself but kind of accidentally. Can't do it twice the same way!

Sansa Clip Audiobook Question


Once I downloaded the newest firmware the audiobooks folder started showing up in the windows file explorer. So now I don't have to worry about using media player or anything else. I just plug in my sansa clip, open windows file explorer and drag the folders (1 for each disk) onto my player (into the audiobooks folder).

Here's the link for the download. If it doesn't come up you might want to reformat your sansa clip.
