Question Audio Books on 8300??? Help Please!!!

Please Login to Remove!

I have a new 8300 and I downloaded the new roxio. I can move songs to my BB but have not had any luck trying to move audio books (that download as .wmd files). roxio has a message that says it only detects media files and i have set it to the : detect all media setting , but still wont pull the audio book over. Can someone PLEASE tell me how to convert the audio books to a file roxio will let me move to BB or tell me what i need to do within roxio to be able to transfer them to BB. Thanks in advance.

I would guess that either
a) They're not a format that can be converted by media manager
b) They're DRM protected and therefore can't be converted at all

Either way, media manager is not going to work for you.

A quick google reckons that a .wmd file is actually a container that you should be able to unzip.

My guessing that in there will be a few small descriptive files and a DRM-protected .wma file. If so, how you'd convert that I've no idea - and depending on where you live it might be illegal to even attempt it.

You may be lucky and the "large file in the zip" may be a file type understood by Roxio. If so, great; if not you might want to try something like mplayer / mencoder to convert it instead of Roxio.
