Re: itunes audiobook

You need to look at the file extension after the . Bookchapter.mp3, Bookchapter.m4a, etc. The iPod has some kinds of files (like m4a) that do not play on the Sansa. But mp3 plays everywhere, and there are programs like  

Media Coder (at ) that can convert .m4a to .mp3. 


But you're not going to be able to do it through iTunes. iTunes syncs to iPods, not to Sansas.


You have to find the files and drag them onto the Sansa. If they are the right kind of files, it's not a big deal. If they are the wrong kind of files, they need to be converted first. 


So....what kind of files are they?

They could still have DRM, though much of the iTunes store is without that now. So before conversion you'd need to strip that.


I believe that will also do your conversion for you. The legality is iffy, but at least where I live there's a decent provision for 'personal use' copying like this.

Re: itunes audiobook

iTunes audiobooks are combined with the DRM protection. This makes it impossible to play elseswhere without the authorization of iTunes. Please just don't worry. In this case, you can use the drm iTunes audiobook converter for mac to help you convert them to compatible MP3 format, then you will be able to enjoy on SanDisck. Hope this helps you well, my friends.
