The problem is that Audible audiobooks use copy protection which means that (a) it should be impossible to convert them to anything, and (b) if you managed to through some technical trick then it would be illegal.I was able to get a windows app called Audible Manager. I can play, but don't see a way to convert to mp3, the aa files.
Can you advise?
Thanks gnasher; can you clarify one thing, please? When you select Burn Playlist to CD in iTunes, a window opens giving you a few choices for the burning format - you can burn as Audio, as mp3, or as Data File/DVD. Obviously the last one is not necessary, but which should you choose between Audio & mp3, for the best results (and fewest CDs used) when copying the CDs back onto your hard drive in any chosen format?Create a playlist containing the audiobook, and then you should be able to burn that playlist to CD ...
With this and most audio that you might want to convert on the internet, I suggest looking for (in this case) the audiobook/CD on YOUTUBE first and foremost. Once you find the desired audiobook/CD on Youtube, if it's there, you can use http://2conv.com/ to convert that video into an mp3. This is a great way around the difficulty possibly encountered when using or after purchasing an .aa (Audible) file.thanks
