  • Anonymous Mar 18, 2014

    a friend had my sansa clip & accidentally put it through the washer. he tried drying it out, but now it only runs when attached to a power cord. it had audiobooks on it. I erased the old books, but now it won't install new ones. I tried the restart thing, trying to re-format, uninstalling & re-installing. Audible manager recognizes it, but books don't load onto it now. Any suggestions?

Go into the Music submenu, and then keep pressing the downward part of the wheel until the "Audiobooks" option comes up. If you don't have any audiobooks loaded, then it MIGHT be greyed out (then again, I have no audiobooks on my player and I still have the option). The manual has the correct instructions, it just doesn't include pictures.

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.

My problem is me. I wanted an MP3 player so I could download an audio book and play it without being connected to my computer. That's what I thought my Buildwon MP3 player was, but now I have it I see...


There are proper audio book readers and there are MP3players

Most audio book player have the ability to pay the book at different speeds without affecting the speech itself

Proper audio books also use a different format for the recordings and thats the only real difference I found.

What I did was find a software convertor that took the original audiobook file and converted it to a more standard MP# file or whatever your preference is.

The disadvantage is that many of the converted files tend to be bigger so an MP3 player should have plenty of storage.

What you would do is transfer the audio book file to your computer
run it through the convertor software then just transfer it to the MP3 payer and listen at your own leasure

Those are two links that should get you started.

there is lots of software out there and much of it can also be had free

I recently purchased a Sansa Clip MP3. I downloaded audiobooks to it but they will not play. What do I need to do?


Not true!!! The Sansa Clip is actually the best mp3 player I have found for listing to audiobooks. Here is what you need to do. Download the latest firmware update on the Sandisk website. You must do this or it just won't work unless you are downloading books from Audible.

I use the Overdrive Media Console and download mp3 and WMA books from my state library. When you hit transfer, be sure it hit advanced options. Browse until you select the audiobook folder on your player. Then transfer to that.

The player will bookmark your last place on anything that is in your audiobook folder. You can easily switch back and forth between your music and book without losing your place! Love it!

It even has a sleep timer on it. I'm in heaven.

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 dioesn't recognize audiobooks


Maybe the new firmware will fix this.

"OGG placed in Audiobook or podcast folder shows up in Music directory." (see below)
(http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=30954)
01.01.30

Enhancements:
  • FLAC decoder support
  • Allow Podcasts to skip episodes using FF / REW
  • New startup and shutoff images
  • Improved the time to rebuild the metadata
  • Improved M3U playlist support
  • Enhancements for sorting Podcast contents which do not have their track number ID3 tag information
  • Separate missing license error message for Audible and generic Audiobooks. Message changed to instruct the customer in how to resolve the problem
Bugs Fixed:
  • OGG placed in Audiobook or podcast folder shows up in Music directory
  • Delete song from a long playlist causes the device to hang
  • Selecting “Back to Music List” while playing FM/Voice recordings will display double “Play All” on screen & will cause device to hang upon selecting “Play All”
  • Certain tag information for mp3 files will cause the device to hang or freeze
  • Made OGG file Tags not case sensitive
  • Noise problem on voice recording
  • Device in MTP mode will jump back to AutoSelect mode after UI format
  • Device behaves erratically when file extension got changed (i.e. .txt to .mp3, .jpg to .wma)
  • All Audiobooks should show 1/1 if Chapter Mode is OFF
  • Certain Rhapsody tracks show clicking noises
  • Deactivation message “Synchronize to listen to your Audiobooks” for Audible is uninformative and irrelevant

Audiobook setting


Instead of dragging the audiobooks to the "music" folder, drag them to the "audible" folder - this player only gives full functionality for audiobooks if you are using the Audible audiobook svc. Otherwise it will play the audiobook as one long mp3 file swithout proper chapter breaks, etc.

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

Sansa Clip Audiobook Question


Once I downloaded the newest firmware the audiobooks folder started showing up in the windows file explorer. So now I don't have to worry about using media player or anything else. I just plug in my sansa clip, open windows file explorer and drag the folders (1 for each disk) onto my player (into the audiobooks folder).

Here's the link for the download. If it doesn't come up you might want to reformat your sansa clip.
