When I attempt to upload an Audible audio file from the Audible web site, the progress bar gets to about 5% and freezes. During which time my sansa m250 freezes with the message "writing data" on the screen. The Audible program on my desktop wont close by convential means so I mush do the Control-Alt-Delete thing to terminate running the program. The only way to get sansa to shut down is by pulling out the battery. Please help.
No Joy mankou,
There is nothing to slike up as directed in the link. My particular model SanDisk has an on/off button that gets pressed to turn on and off. I did however go thru the motions pressing and holding the power button, but there is no change.

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.
MP3 players play audio/music files that have mp3 file extension.
You need to convert the audio books to MP3 format.
If the audio books are on a CD, then you can use Windows Media player to RIP (convert) this to MP3 files.
Spoken Word Browse the Audible audio book file in alphabetical order. Press the Play/Pause/Up Button or Repeat/AB/Down Button to browse through the audible audio files. Press the Select Button to browse the songs for the selected file.

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

Perhaps your audio book was from audible.com. They use their own audible format ( .aa instead of .mp3) and only certain mp3 players can play .aa files. If the book is in .aa format, go to www.audible.com and check to see whether or not your player is compatible with .aa files. If not, you're outta luck.
