How to Play MP3's on an Audible Player

Audible.com is a subsidiary of Amazon that provides over 85,000 audiobooks in 6 languages and categories as varied as religion, politics, the arts and humor. Audiobooks are copyrighted books read aloud, usually by either the author or a celebrity. These can be saved on a computer and transferred to a portable player that enables a user to listen to them on the go. Audible has its own audio player software, which is compatible with most operating systems.

Go to the device center on the Audible website (see Resources) . Under the “Device Center” heading, find the drop down menu labeled "Select Device brand."

Step

Allow the download to install. It will say “Finished” when the player is installed. Choose the MP3 file you wish to play and right-click on it. One of the choices presented is Audible Player. Select it, and the file opens in the Audible player.
