Re: Transferring a book from Book Share to an SD card.

Isn't there a way to download books in an audio format from bookshare? Does the player you want to use read text or just audio files?  Just because text is in the daisy format doesn't mean a player will play it.  The player would have to convert text to speech.  I'm quite sure I heard of a way to download books not with a human reader, but with a speech conversion program Book Share uses that converts text to speech, then, the user downloads the audio file.

Probably the problem is me, because I do not understand
this. Thanks.

Hi Carolyn,

Not sure if this will help you, but this is the information
I was given regarding BookShare files.

If you are transferring an audio book to the card, you want
to place the book in the card, without placing it into a
specific folder.
Copy the folder to the root of the SD card or cartridge.
It should show up then, and you should be able to read it.

The book was a print book from Book Share, or I assume
print. I got two this morning from newest books. They copied
to the SD card fast enough, and they will play on my Victor
Stream.

Then, when I put the card in the Talking Book MP3 Player,
and I set it on SD card, when went to Daizy Books, it said I
had no books.

That was my reason for buying the MP3, and maybe I did not
know enough. It could be that retrieving them on my Stream
doesn't work.  I do not intend to fool with it on the
computer, will just sell the MP at a loss, if there isn't a
solution here. I'm patient, won't list the thing tomorrow.

Thanks for checking.

Hope your day is a diamond,

Carolyn

Hi all,

Carolyn, can you explain what you did?  What format was the
book in?
