AAX files can be played by iTunes and are also supported by the Apple iPod.
To the best of my knowledge, the Sansa unit is not Apple Ipod compatible and therefore cannot play it!
You will need to convert the iTunes AAX files to MP3 format ... providing they are not protected!

I have down loaded a bea to delete other songs -also I have one auto book I am not able to delete

What is a 'bea?'

One way to delete songs (and maybe books) easily is to it through your computer, while the Sansa is tethered;

1) Download the Sansa Clip manual. Here's a link;
http://www.sandisk.com/media/327475/CLIP+_UM_0809_ENG+090309.pdf

2) Put your Sansa in MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode.
Go to Settings, then USB Mode. Select MSC mode.

3) Tether the Sansa to your computer. It will look like a USB flash drive.

4) Delete or add Music, or Books.
You can use Windows Explorer to look through the directories on the Sansa, and delete files directly, as you would on a USB Flash drive.

Special Note on Audio Books--
Get an extra memory card, 4 to 8 Gb should do, and use this as your destination for audio books. If you have a book that will not delete, you can pull the card and re-format it, while leaving your songs intact on the main memory.

If you cannot delete the book through the computer or by menus on the Sansa, you may have to re-format your main memory. Hope that helps!

There are several free data recovery softwares that can get data off of drives that Windows explorer won't touch. Check out: http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm If you don't mind voiding the warranty, you CAN take it out of the enclosure and try connecting it to another computer, but I really think the encryption is going to prevent this.
The only other option would be to send the drive off to a data recovery specialist which is usually extremely effective, but can be very costly (starting around $400).

Hi. I have a Samsung Sansa MP3 clip-on player. I listen to audio books all the time. I order an audio book online. It comes to me in either a regular CD or an MP3 version (however they manufacture it)....

Normally MP3 players can only play music/audio files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

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

Is the e250 Rhapsody compatible with BMW audio??

You might want to try a casette adapter, if your BMW comes equipped with a casette player - multi-adapters (generic) can generally be found for $10-15. BMW audio books appear to be in Mp3 format, so they should work with the Sansa player.

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.
