One of the largest advantage of audiobooks over traditional books is that you can listen to audiobooks while doing other tasks such as running, doing house chores, driving. It will save your time to acquire info in a comfortable way. But what player do you want to use for playing audiobooks?
Hifi speakers, mobile phones, MP3 players or whatsoever? Personally I'd prefer MP3 players because they are usually with low price, easy to take anywhere. Take the SanDisk Sansa which is one of the best MP3 players for example, it is much more lightweight than any mobile devices and it cost only a few dollars. It would be a good idea to play Audible audiobooks on SanDisk Clip Sport when you are doing exercise outside. If you are interested in this topic, you can continue to read on to find the best methods to do that.
Part 1. How to Sync DRM Audible to Sandisk Sansa
Most people may wonder if SanDisk Clip Sport is compatible with Audible or not as such devices don't come with an Audible App. Actually you don't need to worry about that. Audible is supported by many devices including SanDisk, Kindle Fire, Creative MP3 Player, Garmin, Tom Tom GPS and so on.
But since the Audible AA/AAX files are different from the common audiobooks which you download from DRM free websites, you can't copy them directly. Instead you have to activate your device and sync the audiobooks by using the Audible Manager for Windows. How?
Step 1. Download and install the Audible Manager for Windows. Note: It works works on Windows PC, not Mac computer.
Step 2. Plug in your SanDisk Sansa Player into your computer via USB cable, your computer should detect it.
Step 3. Launch Audible Manager > Click "Device" menu > "Add New Device“ > You can select your device from the popup list.

Part 2. How to Convert Audible Audiobooks for Sandisk MP3 Player
"I have sync my downloaded Audible books to SanDisk player. But when I try to open the files, it always freeze. Any ideas why?"
"I am a totally Mac guy without Windows computers. I found the Audible Manager is only available on Windows. Does that mean I can't transfer my audiobooks? Please help."
With the DRM protection, it is normal that sometimes unexpected problems like freezing may happened. This is mostly caused by that the DRM Server can't verify if you are an authorized user or not. One possible reason is to delete the files and start over to sync them again.
