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?

I have a message on my sansa clip that I want to get rid of so that I can continue to listen to my book. I can't listen till this is straightened out. It says synchronize to continue your music...


Audible books are protected, you can copy them into device, but you can't play them (...subscription...appearing ). You must use audible manager to sync audible books.
You should delete audible books that make pop up a message " synchronize to....", otherwise, your device always pops up the message when it meet the audible books.

My opal 4208 rd won't play audible files


Some players need license to play. One way if you can use a program such as nero, super sound recorder, media coder to name a few and record the songs again and then just copy and paste the song into the player. There are alot of free programs that do that. you can email and I will send you a list of free programs that do that. mrbruc3l33@yahoo.com

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 m250 doesn't continue playing from the same spot after power up


This player will only recognize Audible audiobook files

There is not a fix for the pause/resume issue - it is a major problem for just about every mp3 player that claims audiobook compatibility

Here are some help files:

How to activate my nuvi 660 using my mac and itunes or audible.com


I had the same problem and was able to resolve it using the procedure (listed below) from Audible technical support.  It's wordy, but the long and short of it is that you need to activate the Nuvi on a PC machine, then you can use it on the Mac.  To transfer files, open iTunes audiobook window, then drag your books of choice from that window to the Nuvi icon on the desktop.  I had no problems using this procedure.

Thank you for contacting Audible.com. On its behalf, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience and I am most committed to satisfying and resolving your inquiry to the fullest of my abilities.

As per your email I understand that you wish to use your Garmin GPS with Audible on your Mac.

Unfortunately, the Garmin is not supported on a Mac with Audible audiobooks unless it is first activated on a Windows PC. If you have access to a Windows PC please follow the requested steps below to activate it on a PC first. Once successfully activated you will be able to use your Mac to transfer your audiobooks onto it.

If you have access to a Windows PC to activate your Garmin GPS through the Audible Manager software please do the following to get started.

Make sure Audible Manager is installed in your PC, otherwise please go to: Audible Software page ( www.audible.com/software ) and download the version for Download for Windows 2000, XP, or Vista. Select Run or Save. During this installation process, a message: "If you already own an Audible Ready mobile device, please select it from the choices below", will prompt, please select Garmin GPS Devices from the list.

If Audible Manager is already installed on your PC: Launch Audible Manager, click on Devices > Add new device. You will be asked to connect to the Internet. Click Yes to connect. From the list of devices, select the Garmin GPS Devices, and click ok.

Once installed successfully now please follow the requested steps to activate your Garmin Nuvi using the Audible Manager software. 

Ensure that the device is connected to the PC and Internal Memory is selected to activate the Main Memory of your GPS. Please note you may transfer your audiobooks onto the SD card as well if you have one. 

Right-click the Garmin plugin in the bottom left corner of Audible Manager ( below Mobile Devices ) and choose activate. 

After entering your username and password, click ok. 

Once your Garmin has been successfully activated using a Windows PC you may now use your Mac to transfer your Audible audiobooks to your Gramin. 

Before you can transfer your audiobooks on to your Garmin device please follow the requested steps below to download your audiobooks.

Please log into your Audible Account, Click on My Library on the top of the page next to Home, Once you are in your online library towards your right hand side, you will find a tab called "Download It". This will start your download action from our server to your computer. 

This will download the selection onto your desktop and open iTunes. If the file downloads to your desktop, double click or drag the file into the iTunes library. 

Connect your Garmin device to computer. 

Drag the book from iTunes onto the Garmin device.

Playing Audible Files on Garmin Nüvi

From the Main Menu after powering on the Nüvi, select Travel Kit > Audible Book Player.
You can locate the title in the Audible Book Player by clicking on the Browse button. You can search all titles, or by Genre, Author, or Narrator. Select the category you would like to search by, and select the title. Press the Play button to begin enjoying your Audible selection.

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have any information regarding the Garmin GPS being supported on a Mac in the future. However, I will be glad to forward your email address to upper management so you are notified once the Garmin GPS is supported on a Mac.

As always, I hope I have met all your needs and requests, as it has been a pleasure assisting you today. If I could be of any further assistance, or answer any further questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to do so. 

I appreciate and value your business as an Audible customer.

Here at Audible, we truly value and appreciate your business; if you need further assistance, please respond to this email or if you wish, please provide me with a contact number and the best available time to reach you.
