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!
If your sansa 'fuze', right dosen't like your media get the sansa media converting software, My Fuze came with a mini-cd, if yours didn't you can download the official sansa media converter on
I hope it works for you!
P.S. I have no clue about MAC OS
The songs are in the wrong format - they need to be stripped of their DRM license (illegal) or converted to mp3 format. The best, most legal way to do this is to redownload the songs as an Mp3 file, or re-rip your CD's in Windows Media Player in Mp3 format.
these problems occur because
the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not
is in a certain format.The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC
(iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.In addition,
every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.By far the most common issue is that the
music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file
formats).Each Mp3 player only
recognizes a certain number of these formats.Every Mp3 Player is different.You will have to check your
Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which
formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes.When you try to download or
sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned
above.If you want to know what file
type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on
your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option
“Properties” from the menu. Mp3 player product
documentation is not straightforward.If
a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it
supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s
will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure
logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing
system for WMA files.It is used
extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster,
and others.Not all DRM licenses are
created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and
“transfer rights.”Play rights mean that
you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but
it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.Burn rights mean that the song can be burned
to CD.Transfer rights mean that the
song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.Then, there are unlimited licenses and
limited licenses.Limited licenses only
allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay
extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time
length ranges from a few days to several months or longer.
