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.

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.

When I try to listen to my audiobook, a message pops up saying "Please acivate your device to play this title". How do I activate my device? (I got my audiobook from audible.com)


I think this has nothing to do with the philips mp3 player and more to do with the audible website.
~~ Activate 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?

Playerdoes not seem to restart or resune at the same spot that it was stopped in aN AUDIO BOOK.


You can resume play after navigating away from audiobooks. Play resume function is provided in this model. However, if you are unable to use this feature, I'd suggest that you uninstall audible manager and then install again. If the problem persists you can contact Audible support or Philips support.


Hope this helps.

I have downloaded an audiobook and transferred it onto my mp3 player, but the message "File format not supported" pops up and will not play the book


I had the same issue with my Audible.com downloads, since their audiobooks use the copyright-protected format *.AA. I had to go buy an mp3 player that supported that file extension.

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.

Recording Audio-books


The GoGear says it is compatible with Audiobooks, but only in the loosest sort of way. It has no way of natively playing them in order or keeping your place, etc. Even the GoGear's that have an Audible folder won't work well, b/c the deal between Audible and Philips fell through prior to release - LOL. Your best bet would be to open Windows Media Player, right click each audiobook track, select "Advanced Tag Editor," and manually re-enter the track number for each chapter in the order that you want them to play. Then delete the current audiobook files off the Philips, and then reload the ones that you have just edited. Good luck!

Can't play downloaded audiobook


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.

GOGEAR SA 3345/37 - Computer is not recognizing player as a player


The 5125 recognizes copyright-encryption and has an Audiobook feature

The 3345 does not recognize copyright-encryption, and does not support audiobooks - if you want some laughs - the file system in the 3345 has an Audible folder, but the player does not recognize Audible - it was a design fluke

Problem playing a downloaded audio book


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. durok
