How to Play Audible on MP3 player

Posted by on .

One reason that I love audiobooks is that I can listen to the audiobook while doing other things, such as doing laundry or taking exercise. So I prefer to playing audiobook on portable MP3 player rather than Iphone or Android device because the MP3 player is smaller and easy to carry. However, audiobooks purchased from Audible.com are protected by DRM and only can be played on limited apps and devices. Listening to Audiobooks becomes much harder because of the DRM protection. Many consumers want to play their purchased Audible audiobooks on any device or player. To solve this problem, I will introduce two ways to listen to Audible on MP3 player. Method 1 is importing Audible books to MP3 player with Audible Manger while method 2 is removing DRM from Audible and converting audible .aa or .aax to MP3 format.
