    Re: [SOLVED] HOW TO download books from Audible.com

    Yes! It was the site. And you're correct; I was copying the quotes. I'm still at a very basic level with all of this and don't know how to properly form/format things.

    Thank you!

    Been there, done that

    I still get things wrong a lot and I am not that familiar with linux, more than Windows though (all my Windows knowledge fell out of my head when Ubuntu came along). Just enough to get by, you pick up bits and pieces as you need them. I recently learned a lot about how USB devices are treated because I could not get my AVR programmer working correctly.

    Glad it worked out for you,
    Justin

    Does the iPod support the Audible audio files out of the box or do you have to register it via the Audible software? I have installed their software in WINE but it tells me that my device is not connected. My player (Rio Carbon) is autodetected and is mounted, I can use banshee to transfer songs to it so I know it is connected, but the audible software does not find it and I have to use their software to register so I can listen to the file I have already paid for and downloaded. Man Audible SUCKS.

    Thank you so much for posting that tip. I also wrote to them and they said you could not play audible books on linux. They need to hear from linux users and realize they are missing possible sales.

    Thanks BIG TIME, this worked for me. Seems like most companies don't do most forms of DRM on Linux.

    Is this still good information or is it outdated?

    The solution still 'works' fine.

    Although the resultant file is encrypted, so it still seems that you need to go via the Audible Windows software.
