Re: How Do You Download Audio Books Onto the Sansa Fuze MP3 Player

Once you download them through the Overdrive program, transfer them to the Fuze through the Overdrive program, not WMP. If you have WMA books, you need Overdrive to copy the license information to your player.

 

In Overdrive, highlight your book and hit the "Transfer" button,

Select your device to transfer to,

Enter "\audiobooks" where it allows you to browse for location, so it transfers to that folder on your Fuze (I usually do \audiobooks\{bookname} to keep things neat),

Go.

On the Fuze, look under Music->Audiobooks and it should be there.

 

It may be necessary to do this:  

On the Fuze go to Settings->System->USB Mode & change to MTP (this matters for some people)

I'm very new to this....and very frustrated.  I have downloaded MP3 audiobooks from the library OverDrive program ---placed them in windows media player, made a playlist to sync to my sansa fuze, but cannot get it placed in the audiobook folder of the fuze.
HELP---please step by step...Thank you....

 

 

You have to use the Overdrive Console to transfer your media to the player. There should be a link to download it (with instructions) on your library's website.

One word . . . ID3 tags (well, maybe that's 2 words). Do a search.

I haven't had a problem with bad tags from Overdrive, except with incomplete downloads & redownloading fixed the tags.  I'm sure it could happen, though.

OverDrive Library audiobooks load perfectly onto the Fuze if you do a slight modification when loading from the OverDrive Media Console app:

 

In OverDrive: "Transfer" --> "Next" --> "Advanced Options".
Edit the pathname to change "Music" to "Audiobooks".

 

E.g., change from

   \Music\John Grisham\The Appeal

to

   \Audiobooks\John Grisham\The Appeal.

 

 

 

You'll only get the nice resume in the Fuze or Clip/Clip+ if the audiobook parts are either a) each tagged as "Audiobook", or b) located in the player's folder "Audiobooks" (plural)--that's what's shown above.  Most OverDrive library patrons with a Fuze or Clip do technique "b", simply because it's easier (no extra tagging app to run).

Thanks for the clarification - when I wrote my original reply, I didn't remember the exact steps.  But, yes, that's how you put it in the \audiobooks folder!
