Dude, I just used foobar to convert the Audible files I have to .mp3s. Works fine.
Foobar, really? I'll have to look that one up. Thank you.

Well, that didn't work.

Foobar 2000 v0.9.6.8:

"Unable to open file for playback (Unsupported File Format)"

Any more suggestions, ah, "Dude"?

Since neither the Audible.com nor Foobar applications have Linux versions, so am I.

What is the Audible ".aa" file fornat reported as in Foobar? I tried most of the add-ons, but it still wasn't able to open the file. Maybe you have a plug-in that I haven't found yet.

I use a Sansa Fuze. I love it. My single complaint is that it's a dip shit proprietary connector. Every other device I own is mini USB.

He's one of those people who think people who fling expletives because a product isn't designed the way they would design it is a fucking moron.

Rip it to cd then re-encode.  It should work.

  BUT, there is such a thing as an instruction manual, and there are things such as support forums to help you out.  I mean really, is it THAT hard to work with? 

No, it really isn't that hard to work with. 

That doesn't mean I should be bothered fuckin' around with Apple's creative solution to moving a folder from one drive to another. 

Also, it didn't come with a manual, afaik.  If it did, she woulda been flapping it into my face telling me to read it.  I assumed it was a video tutorial in the player somewhere, or available in iTunes as a free download. 

That's what happens when you assume!  LOL  Seriously, there are manuals on the apple site.

What part of "getting it somewhere online from Apple in digital form" was I unclear on? 

Did it come with a paper booklet?  NO.

Could I have Googled "iPod Touch Users Manual" and gotten 2,953,456 results in 0.1 seconds, with the top result being Apple.com?    YES. 


I still haven't, and I won't.  Because its not my fucking device, and I don't plan on reading (torturing myself with) 100 pages of crap because iTunes SUCKS BALLS. 

That I can agree with you on.  It used to be a nice little music player for the mac before Apple bought it.  It really started sucking once apple bought it. I forgot the actual name of it, but it used to be a 3rd party app.  Now it;s just a slow, bloated and outdated piece of shit.  But what it does well is work well with the apple devices.  But it is slow as hell.

I guess I'm the one person who bought a Zune 120.  I love it though.  My only major complaint is that I have to convert my flac files to wma lossless for them to sync.  Other than that, it's pretty decent.  I just set it up to sync my whole library except for songs that have a low rating.  I use Media Monkey to manage tags and album art.   Pretty easy now that I have it all figured out.  I just have to stay on top of the tags when I rip/download them.  Otherwise, if I change them (even slightly) the Zune re-syncs them as a different album.  But, there's a hack that allows me to open the device as a hard drive, so I can just delete them when that happens rather than format the whole device.

Well, I think that you are the only one that has one of those...  Is it any good?
