Re: Portable NLS players besides a Smart Phone

Here's the whole picture when it comes to nls players. The flash drives must beformatted fat 32. Some flash drives just will not work, even if they are the  same brand and storage capacity. With the latest firmware installed on the nls players I have some sandisk 238 gig drives that will work perfectly. I'm not sure in what I'm getting ready to tell you, that you could count on all the time because I've seen the following brand of drives, not work from time to time.However, there's a few brands most generally will work, and those brands would be sandisk, p n y, and patriot. I'm not trying to drum up any business but I could custom make nls cardridges up to 238 gig. This is sort of dated but ithis does have some good information of which  here's a sendspace link to this file that you can listen too. Here's the link to download the file

Make sure you copy the entire unzipped folder, not the contents of the folder.

Good Evening.  The player will say the title of the book and then just beep.  I’ve unzipped it using bard express and copy to a cartridge.  I’d sure like to figure out why it’s not playing.  It’s a 30 gig drive.  When I hit rewind, the machine just beeps.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.  BZ!

I know you can use as much as 128Gig. Must be something wrong with the drive or the way they were unzipped. I use a 32 gig mini drive that only pretrudes about  a quarter of an inch from the side of the  player. Only disadvantage of using large drives is, it takes a while to boot up when you turn on the player. the More books on the drive, the more beeps. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi, Ann, Brian Zolo here in Gahanna, Ohio.  Feel free to call me BZ, grin!  I’m needing to find a flash drive for my advanced digital talking book player.  What size is your flash drive?  I’ve got two Samsung 30 gig drives and I’m not able to play books on them.  I can unzip the books on bard express to the flash drive but then I can’t play them.  I hear the title of the book and the author but I then can’t play the book.  What size is your flash drive.  I had heard that you really shouldn’t go above sixteen gigs of storage with digital talking books for them to play properly on your flash drive and I am using the latest firmware on my digital talking book player.  Thanks so much and appreciate your assistance, have a great weekend!  BZ!

Hi,

You can play Learning Ally books on the DTBM NLS players. I have several on my main flash drive right now. You just need to go to the Learning Ally web site, and get instructions as well as a key to install on your device.

But you can't play BARD books. The key for the device to play them would
have been a key for the player, if it's not a BARD player given out by the
NLS. Like a Victor device, or a bookport or something. Pam.

I vaguely recall years ago trying to play an NLS book or one of those books
from Learning Ally (formally recorded Books for the Blind) with FSReader and
getting an audible message of how I needed to obtain a special key to unlock
the device I wish to play it on due to special restrictions, etc.
With so many other options to read audiobooks, I really didn't follow up on
it.
So whether it's an absolute that there's no way you can play these types of
formatted books on the PC, I don't know, but this was my limited experience.

There is no way you can listen to talkingbooks on a computer. They
purposely made it so that it can't be done. Pam.

Hi everyone:

I would like the answer to Lisa’s question two. I might want to listen to a
book on a PC some day as well.

Thanks,

Victor

Hi, all.


I have a friend who recently sent in his advanced NLS player and got
back the basic one. He hates the basic one, and is wondering if there
are ways to play BARD books on his PC. I told him there probably
wasn't, but I thought I'd check with the list first.


Since he probably won't be able to use his PC, is there another
portable option besides the Victor? A smart phone isn't even a
consideration, so it's going to have to be a blindness specific product.


TIA,


Lisa
