Loading Audible files on to Clip sport

One of the supported file format for the Clip sport is Audible. How do I load the file on to the device? I am not able to activate the device to load the file

Re: Loading Audible files on to Clip sport

When the Zip first came out, there was a similar issue, with Audible taking time to add the player to its "approved list."  I wonder if that is happening here.  I would contact Audible about this.  Note:  the last time, Audible blamed SanDisk, but the fault really lay with Audible . . . .

If your computer recognizes your mp3 player but Audible does not, you probably need to update your firmware.  You can do this by following these steps:

 

Remove external memory card

Turn on mp3 player, go to Settings, then to Info to check your firmware version - in order to play Audible books, you must have  version 1.29, most Clip Sport's come with version 1.27

To update firmware go to this link and download the .hex file.  

http://downloads.sandisk.com/firmware/clipsport/129/UPGRADE.hex

Save .hex file some place easy to find, like the desktop

DO NOT try to open this .hex file.

Connect your mp3 player to pc/laptop via USB port

To transfer this file to your player you must have at least a 50% charge on your player

Right click the .hex file and choose Send To mp3 player/Clip Sport

Go back into Settings, Info on the mp3 player to make sure the firmware version has been updated to version 1.29

Reinsert your external memory card

Audible will now be able to recognize your mp3 player - enjoy!

I tried so many things and this was the one that finally worked. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Couldn't be happier.

Now that this is 2017, and the firmware version is 1.36, this no longer seems to work. I have updated to firmware version 1.36 and still cannot activate my Clip Sport through Audible.
