I received the SanDisk Clip Zip player today to play audio books. I found a book on a legal free site in a mp3 format but it is zipped – they all are. I can drag and drop zipped file into the AudioBooks folder, but it doesn’t show up on the player. When I try to move the unzipped chapters, I can’t do it. The red circle with a line through it shows up. How do I move books from my computer onto the device? Thanks.
You have to first ‘un-zip’ the zip (compressed) files. Then copy the ‘extracted’ files to the player. 7-Zip is a good free program to do this.
Delete the .zip folder from your player. Then use 7-Zip to extract the z.ip file on your computer. Then copy/paste or drag & drop the (now larger) extracted files to your player.
Thank you very much! I’m now enjoying the player.
What site are you using for free audiobooks? Are these public domain books?
