I listen to alot of audiobooks on my Zen, but I have a problem. Unlike my Rio Carbon (which isn't compatible with NetLibrary downloads, unfortunately), the player doesn't seem to save my place on a track when it shuts down and restarts, forcing me to fish around for awhile to find where I was. Is there any way to get the player to save my spot on a track when it shuts down and restarts?
I had the same problem. If you turn off the player without stopping the track, it will start up at the same spot. I found that if you pause first and then turn off your player, it will start up at the beginning of a track and then you have to forward and reverse to find your spot.

Plugging the player into your computer and deleting the audiobook directly off the device is the best way to do this. It will show up as a removable device and you can navigate to the folder where the audiobook is located and delete.
An audiobook is a book that has been read by an actor or actress (or more than one) and recorded. In the old days they were on tape. Now they're on CDs or online. Either way, you can treat them like any music album. Well, almost. Virtually every audiobook is more than one disc, and you certainly want to listen to the tracks in order, without any shuffling.
I use my Sansa almost exclusively for audiobooks, putting complete series on microSD cards and swapping them out as needed.
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.
It does not support Audible. I have funny insider information on this - Philips originally planned to make it Audible compatible, and even added an Audible folder. In the end, they didn't seal the deal and sent out players that were not compatible with audible, but have an Audible folder in them. LOL.
A workaround is to download audiobook files in mp3-only format. You won't be able to use them like an audiobook, but they will be available for lsiten.
I bought a MuVo V100 specifically because a sister uses it very successfully for audio books. I'm still learning because it doesn't seem easy to do, but she managed fine. So don't assume it won't work for books.
The icons are confusing to deal with but the book will be in the "folders." When you find Library A, you push the button thing IN. Then you scroll sideways until your title comes up.
I've done it myself but kind of accidentally. Can't do it twice the same way!
