How can i fast forward on an audio book

I use my MP3 to listen to audio books, but when I fast-forward or reverse, it goes to the next or previous chapter. Often, I just want to ''rewind'' a short distance because I missed a few seconds of the audio and would like to it be repeated.
Is there a way to simply ''rewind'' a short distance?.

My player is a Sandisk Sansa C150 2.0 GB

On ipods if you hold the fast-forward or reverse down (not just click on them) it will jump forward or back a few seconds at a time. If you listen whilst you are doing this you can usually recognise the bit where you you want to re-start palying and release it at that point. It seems counter-intuitive but it works.

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.

Typically when the seek buttons are omitted, Pressing and holding the previous/next track buttons you are referring to will provide a seek function. Try that and see if it works.

Fast forwarding for listening to books


I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.

First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.

If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using Audible.com to listen to audiobooks.

Playback of audio files does not resume where I left off when powering back on


I have an e260. I use it for audiobooks a lot. I just press pause (centre top of the dial), and the track will resume from there next time (unless I go back to the main menu for radio of course.)

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 do you save where you left off listening to an audio book?

Resume where stopped listening


Review the pages in the manual regarding organizing your tracks into folders, and select "Repeat folder" in the folder view menu.

There is no bookmark option per se with this GoGear, even though other GoGears have the feature. You cannot stop where you left off - just note the time on the track when you stopped, and fast forward to that time when you next turn on the goGear.
