Connect the supplied USB cable from your player to the USB port on your MAC. The MAC will detect this player and your can then copy the audiobooks from the MAC to the Scandisk.
If the Scandisk cannot play the audiobooks then they are in the wrong file format. Then they need to be converted to the file format that the Scandisk uses.

Even on a Macbook pro, you should be able to access your "my computer" option, where it shows you the local disk drives and everything. your mp3 player icon should appear there. then after you click on the icon it should bring up a page containing folders "on" your mp3 player. there doesnt have to be any music or videos or anything like that to have the folders already on there. now i dont have a mac but what i suggested you to do should work.

You might be trying to play a DRM protected MP3 audiobook.Try to get the non DRM version so that it can be played on all devices other than the one the book has been bought on.

I recently purchased a Sansa Clip MP3. I downloaded audiobooks to it but they will not play. What do I need to do?


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!

It even has a sleep timer on it. I'm in heaven.

Won't load audiobook because clock is not set


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.

Can't transfer data files


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.

Transfer error 0X8004C01A--Just started--What to do?


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.

Check it in SETTINGS > USB MODE on your player."

Can't transfer Audible files to my Sansa Clip


The link to the operating manual (which includes the Audiobook instructions) is here:
http://www.sandisk.com/sansa/assets/English/products/Clip/Clip_userguide_en.pdf

What I would do is drag and drop the Audible files from the folder that Audible creates to store your audiobooks to the Audible folder of the Sansa Clip, instead of using the Audible Manager.

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.
