Rats! I can understand why the RB developers would want to stay below that particular radar. That's too bad. I'll just record my book with Gold Wave overnight, and when I wake up the next morning, bingo!

You'll have to convert it to a friendlier file type like MP3 to play it on a Rockboxed player. Rockbox refuses to play any drm-protected media. Although they could get around it the devs don't wish to attract any negative legal attention to themselves besides not agreeing with the idea of DRM-protection in the first place.

Stay well,

Good evening everyone. I would like to listen to my Audible books on
the Sansa Clip Zip with Rockbox. I use Windows 10 and I have the
Audible Manager. My PC is also authorized to play Audible books. I
see Sansa Digital Devices under Audible Manager's list of devices, but
I can't seem to figure out how to get Audible Manager to initialize my
Clip. Anyone know if I can actually listen to Audible on my Clip? If
so, could you share some tips. Thanks for your help.
