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!

My problem is me. I wanted an MP3 player so I could download an audio book and play it without being connected to my computer. That's what I thought my Buildwon MP3 player was, but now I have it I see...


There are proper audio book readers and there are MP3players

Most audio book player have the ability to pay the book at different speeds without affecting the speech itself

Proper audio books also use a different format for the recordings and thats the only real difference I found.

What I did was find a software convertor that took the original audiobook file and converted it to a more standard MP# file or whatever your preference is.

The disadvantage is that many of the converted files tend to be bigger so an MP3 player should have plenty of storage.

What you would do is transfer the audio book file to your computer
run it through the convertor software then just transfer it to the MP3 payer and listen at your own leasure

I cannot get my Sansa Clip MP3 Player to play recorded books. I downloaded the book chapter by chapter and I can see them when I use the computer to explore the player. I cannot get the player give me...


Audio books should be listed within the Music folder on your clip.. just scroll until you see it.

You may have to manually put the audio book into that folder via My computer beforehand.

WIndows media player does not recognize the audio book subfolder and will mix your audio books into the album mix.. but just ignore this

How do I add audiobooks from windows media player to coby 300. Coby manager says it on there but coby player tells me no files.


Most audio books are Protected WMA files which this unit does not accept, you would have to convert your audio books to MP3 format for them to play properly on your MP300. Honestly, this unit isnt good for audio books as audio books break up into chapters, this unit has no sort order so your chapters would be out of order.

How can I find instructions for recording and playing audio books on my newly purchased Sony Walkman?


if your recording your audio books from cd, then they should be put into tracks, just make sure to put a number before any actual text (the first part of the book labled 01 - audiobookname) and it should play them in order. if its a file over an hour long i would look for software to break up the file into smaller (more digestable) segments. its a software limitation of the sony network walkmans that has gone back since the beginning of the network walkman product line.

however, guessing that these are downloaded audio books mostlikely, it then becomes a conversion problem.

i did a google search for
audiobook to mp3 converter
and found a few things, but all those solutions wouldnt help much here. your looking for something fast easy and free.... i'm still searching for a solution that includes the free... but for the meantime see if this helps you

How can i fast forward on an audio book


there's no function for this on mp3 players.if you know you're going to want to do this frequently when you're reading the book it would be better to download it in chapters and then you could at least jump from one chapter to another without listening to the whole thing each time.You could record chapters or the whole thing onto Audacity ( A free sound recording program) and break it up into smaller sections.This is a lot of messing about and you'd probably be better off trying to find the book as an ebook and just search out the relevant bit that you'd missed and read it instead. I think it would be a great step forward if mp3 players were able to do this.The only equipment I know of that can do this(other than a media player on a pc) is on some digital radios where you can pause and do a rewind to the bit you want but this is usually only over a short period (5 mins for example on the Roberts digital radio.
