audiobook missing

my audiobook is not showing on player but when its connectd to the computer it says they are there. I am using windows media player And tried drag and drop neither show up its in WMA format. I reset the player and it still wont work. This is a brand new player right out of the box doI retrurn it? This is the main reason I got it for audiobooks

What type of audio book is it? Did you rip it from CD’s? Is it from Audible.com or ‘borrowed’ from the library? These will require being transferred in MTP mode (not dragged & dropped) with either WMP or Overdrive Media Console.

yes it is from a cd I have overdrive media I will try that. Thank you

Don’t know how to use overdrive console for a cd. What program do you reccommend. All I want to do is put audiobokks on here why is this so hard??

Did you put it in the audiobooks folder on the player? Do the files have tags? Is the genre tag audiobook for the audiobook files? If on the player you scroll to music>folders, can you see the book on the player?

Are the audiobook files in a format the Clip recognizes, such as mp3?   Or are they in the regular audio CD format, cda?  If the latter, you would need to rip the audio files into a computer file format (mp3, flac, etc.), to play them on your Clip–easy to do and you likely already have a ripper if you have Windows Media Player on your computer, which includes one.

Sorry, it seems as though you misunderstood what I wrote. Overdrive is only needed for borrowed books from the library. Audible probably has their own transfer software too.

For CD’s that you have ripped yourself, either with WMP or another ripping program, you don’t need these specialized software transfer programs. You should be able to simply drag & drop the file (after ripping it to .mp3 format) from your computer to your player or “synch” (yuck) it via WMP. If you use this method, the player will have to be in MTP mode. For drag & drop, MSC mode works best.

Are you sure you didn’t use WMA lossless? Sandisk players don’t support WMA lossless.Perhaps you should try rippping it again. I suggest that you rip it to 32 kbps mp3 mono. This will save space and give you longer battery life. Battery life is around 25% or so longer for mp3 than wma files, and using a lower bitrate will not only save space on the player, but further increase the battery life.
