Audible .aa files to .mp3
Converting .aa files to mp3’s. _DBpoweramp comes in handy again as a way to get my audible files onto unsupported devices. Audible is great but they don’t support every device._
Here is how:
I’ve finally found a way to convert .aa (audible) to .mp3’s at 50x realtime!
# Install Just use dBpowerAMP Music Converter which can be found at: “DBPowerAmp”:http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm
# Install the “DirectShow codec”:http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-directshow.htm.
# And follow the instructions found at: “DBPowerAmp forum”:http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?p=37339#post37339
# Install AudibleManager AND Windows Media Player Filter (bottom of download page) of “Audible software”:http://www.audible.com/software
# Set DirectShow to know about Audible file types with Start >> Programs >> dbpoweramp Music Converter >> Configure DirectShow Decoder
# at the end of this text file type (on a new line): _.aa_
# Save the file (File >> Save)
# Run dBpowerAMP Configuration with Start >> Programs >> dBpowerAMP Music Converter >> Configuration >> dMC Configuration
# That is it, dbpoweramp can read audible files and Sveta Portable audio can upload Audible files to portables that support it.
# As a small aside, if you are converting to MP3, you can either pay Illustrate, $15 for their MP3 license or you can use the converter called mp3 (Lame) which you can then point to a free version of Lame somewhere on your machine.
