There is a way and none of your solutions work. There is a software you can download and use as a Hack but the problem is that is does not work with Windows XP/Vista/7...Windows Media Player does not recognize the Zune as a devioce or a player, just like Windows will not recognize it as a storage drive in Windows Explorer. You would figure with Zune being a Microsoft Product, that it would work well with other MS products but they screwed up somewhere and did not get the memo that Zune is a MS product

The "AA" file type is not supported in the NWZ MP3 players. However, you are still able to place audiobooks onto your player if you convert the file to one of the supported file audio formats: MP3. WMA, AAC-LC, and PCM. Remember that there are several iterations of MP3, such as variable bit rate and frequency range and the player does not play some of them.
What I do is that I pull the file into Audacity and convert it there. Another option is that if you can burn the audiobook onto a CD, you can then rip to WMP and then sync it to your player. That is how I get my language audiobooks onto my player. The last option, which I have never tried, is to get it into ITunes, then sync it to your player that way. ITunes will automatically convert the file before syncing it onto the player.
Unfortunately Microsoft doesn't use Windows Media Player for its Zune product. You have to download Zune Marketplace it is an Itunes-esque media interface. That is the only way you can load your music onto the zune.
First download the driver from your player's manufacture's site. It will be under download tab or support tab. Download and install driver, then restart pc
Then turn on device, then plug into pc, then go to my computer, then you should see your device there. Double-click on the device folder. Now you can see and will have access to all folders. You can leave this page up, then go to the page & file that your book is on. click, hold, and then drag this file over to the audio book folder and release the button, it will transfer the book to the mp3 player audio book file. You can also use windows media player 11 and sync your mp3 player to your windows media player and create a playlist or library and transfer them onto mp3 player as well
the problem with the zune is that its own by microsoft and you cannot sync music without the software however there is a zune forum that you can check out for advice on how to use the software better.. zune.net then check out the forums
Make sure the usb mode is msc Open my computer click sansa open sub folders delete from here or right click on Sansa select format this will delete all....Try and drag and drop the audio book into the folder assigned Here is the link for the manual and update firmware plus the media converter (http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe)
Once you have the audio loaded and it works sync and try with your WMP......Hope this works
First off...I'm sorry. This isn't going to be super-simple or automated.
The Insignia MP3 players play MP3 and WMA audio files only (okay...and audio books). If you have a pretty nice collection of unprotected music files that you have purchased from iTunes, then you'll be able to do this conversion.
The Insignia player will not sync with iTunes...the program and the player are not compatable. You do not need to use Windows Media Player to load music on your Insignia player.
Here's the process:
Set your Insignia player to Mass Storage or "File & Folder". This makes it look like another drive to the computer.
Navigate to the Options or Preferences area (it's different depending on whether you use a Mac or a PC), select the BURN tab and set the file format to MP3 and the quality rating you desire (I suggest either 128kb or 192kb).
Select the songs you want to put on your player.
Tell iTunes to "Conver to MP3" the songs you have selected.
Once these files are copied as MP3s, Navigate to the iTunes folder (should be in My Documents/My Music/iTunes). I reccommend placing a shortcut to your iTunes folder on your desktop for future use.
Drag and Drop your music files to your Insignia player.
You're good to go. Unplug the Insignia player and enjoy!
Plugging into new computer erased some of the formatting.
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media
Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath
the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking
on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
