How to Play MP3's on an Audible Player

By KellyB

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.

Step 1

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 2

Click on the arrow and find the brand for which you want the Audible player. If there is more than one model of your device, a list of choices appears when you select the brand.

Step 3

From the list of devices, find your model and click the link to its right, labeled "Click Here to Download Your Software."

Step 4

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.

Tips & Warnings

  • Set the Audible player as your default player if you want to use it for all audio play.
