Question about RCA TH1101 MP3 Player

1 Answer

TH1100 I loaded quite a long audiobook onto my TH1100. How can I get it start back where I left off when turning unit off?

    I have the same problem. Hour plus long sections of an audio book, that start over if I shut the player off. What a pain. I've had the Th1100 for about a week, and liked everything about (price, size, expandable memory, compatible with audio books, etc...) until I discovered that it would not start back up where I left off after shutting it off. For me, someone who uses it primarily for audio books, this will be a deal breaker. RCA markets this player partially as ideal for audio books. This being the case, it would have made sense to not exclude this feature. If anyone has a solution, it would be helpful.

Won't load audiobook because clock is not set


Had the same problem - used this solution from ehow.com at this web address: http://www.ehow.com/how_5180421_troubleshoot-sansa-clip-mp.html Worked and now I'm transferring my book from overdrive - hope it helps. Reset the Clip by holding the On/Off switch in the On position for approximately 20 seconds. Release the switch, then attach it to the USB adapter to charge it. This process can help when the Clip does not appear to be working at all.

I have a Philips GOgear SA5285 and I can load the audible audiobooks and they go to the audiobook file but when I load my library books from Netlibrary.com they load as songs and do not have book marks, so...


If you are a newbie, and you primarily want the mp3 player for audiobooks, then go ahead and take this player back to the store - I'll tell you why:
The deal between Audible and Philips fell through before the latest series of GoGear's was released. Therefore, even though the player has an Audible folder, it will not properly play Audible audiobook files. Sad, but true.

Your post reminds me that I need to write a Consumer Watch article on mp3 players that claim to play audiobooks - 90% of them will not easily allow you to play audiobooks - you will have to jump through hoops.

If you still want to try, here is what you want to do:
1. Delete any audiobooks off the GoGear, but make sure that you have a copy of the audibooks on your computer itself.
2. Open Windows Media Player. Find your audiobook files in your library. If they don't show up, then you will have to move your mouse over the Library tab - a small black arrow should appear underneath the word "Library" - click the black arrow and select "Add to Library". Click "Add" and find the folder in which your Audible files are stored. It may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player will add these files to Windows Media Player.
3. Right-click an Audiobook file starting with Chapter 1 of whatever book, and select "Advanced Tag Editor". One-by-one, manually assign an a track number to each audiobook chapter - Track 1 for Chapter 1, Track 2 for Chpater 2, etc.
4. Now, re-add the audiobook files to your GoGear.
5. You might additionally have to go into the Settings menu of your GoGear, and turn Shuffle mode off - your user's manual can show you how to do this.

Sound like a lot of work? You betcherbottom dollar it's a lot of work. This particular mp3 player is not the best for audiobooks.

Transfer error 0X8004C01A--Just started--What to do?


Some audiobook services have fixed-term licenses of 1-year - at the end of the time period, you have to resynchronize the audiobook files to the audiobook service itself.

Here is an interesting clip from the Sandisk forums on this exact issue:
"
Overdrive library books have DRM-encryption to make them stop working at the end of the loan-out period unless you renew them. This means your player must be set to MTP mode.

If your player intentionally or un-intentionally got switched to MSC mode, that would prevent the DRM content from being loaded onto your player and account for the error message.

Check it in SETTINGS > USB MODE on your player."

FF - This is a common problem with Audiobooks - there is no way around it on this player. Drag files to Audiobooks folder to get them out of the "music" folder

Audiobooks


So far, the best thing I have found is make a note of the time display when stopping, and the FF back to it when I come back to it. I realize that this isn't great, but may be good until a genius can make their post here.
