Making A Cd Or Dvd From An Audible.com Book?

Question

I am a complete novice. Do not know the lingo . Need to know if one can take an Audible.com book and tranfer it to a CD or DVD in a compressed state so it is only one disc. I have numerous books I want to share with my blind aunt. I have Roxio Creator NXT Pro. Is this possible??? If not with Roxio, is there another way? Thanks.

What media is the audio book on?

 

Audio books from Audible come with copy-protection. Roxio products don't break copy protection because in most Countries it is illegal to do so.

 

Audible might let you burn a copy to a CD. You would have to ask someone familiar with them maybe there website?

With Audible, you can burn to a CD or CD-RW to listen to. You can do this in itunes with software from Audible or through the Download Manager from Audible. With Audible, you can also transfer your audiobook to an ipod through itunes or through an ipod/ipad, kindle or such or smartphone or tablet or computer, listen via the audible app. Any of these ways will make it so you can listen to these on your own or with your grandmother present.

There are restrictions with the Audible user agreement you folks agree to.

 

You can burn an audibook to a CD only one time. With Audible you can download to the computer, stream, or burn to a CD. You can also download or transfer to any audible ready device such as a smartphone, tablet, iPod, Kindle, or any other compatible mp3 player.

 

And you can download your audiobooks on up to 4 computers/laptops and 3 devices PER type of device.

I bought a book from Audible and tried to burn it to CD in iTunes. It said I could burn it over multiple CDs but this process stopped halfway through and the discs have not recorded the book in it's original order. The first disc begins with Chapter 10 and there is no way of finding which of the 7 CDs has the first chapter as the tracks are not identified. I read elsewhere in a forum that this is a common problem (I wish Audible has advised me before I joined them) and one solution has been suggested: to burn individual CDs of 80 minutes each. This worked well for the first 2 CDs of part 1 of the book (it has 1 file of each of the 2 parts of the book) but when I tried to burn the third I got the message that Audible files can only be burned once.


Has anyone else come across this and is there anyway around it?

Does this have anything to do with a Roxio or Corel program? If not, this will get moved to the general area where many more people will see it.

Yes Steve, it does not seem like other than the question of whether Roxio can get through the intended restrictions he agreed to when he signed up... ;)

 

I would think that if he contacted Audible with his issues they could get him going...

 

Curious, If they are on multiple CDs, how does your Aunt or Grandmother (not sure which?) keep them in order?

Did you even read the two year old posts above your post?

 

There is no Roxio Corel problem here only a Audible iTunes problem!

 

Go to Apple or Audible support forums.

 

There is a way around everything but that would circumvent the Digital Rights Management (DRM) and that will not be discussed here.
