What do you use for the DRM?

My favorite audiobook app -- Bookmobile -- will no longer deal well with Audible books. It constantly loses its place, occasionally plays a random mp3, and so on. It works fine with mp3 files, though. So I've been thinking about finding some way to convert my aax files.
I use a free program called inAudible. I'm theory it works on both .aa and .aax files, but I find it a better process with .aax files. Current version is 1.95 I think. The output is either .MP3 or .m4b, your choice.

I can't give you info on removing DRM as it's against Mobileread rules.
No, actually we can now answer in a general way. Just can't give step by step directions. Essentially the same as with eBooks.

I've been using aaxtomp3--never heard of inAudible.

How are you downloading the current Audible audiobooks? Enhanced or Format 4? That may make a difference with using your Bookmobile.

That's a good thought. I usually download in enhanced, but I could try other formats.

Otherwise, consider going back to the Audible app.
I'm mostly using iBooks right now. It's not as good as Bookmobile, but it's a step up from Audible.

Great -- thanks! I'll Google it!

Quick update: I should have mentioned earlier that I'm on a Mac. I briefly checked out AAXtomp3, inAudible, and AudibleChapters, but it appears that those are mostly PC-focused. InAudible does have a Mac version called minAudible, but apparently it is no longer being updated. However, I've just downloaded an app called OpenAudible that has a specific Mac version, and I'm going to give it a try.

Thanks for the pointers. I'll report back on how this works!

Further update -- OpenAudible seems to work great, after just one experiment. It makes a single large mp3, which may be a problem for some folks, but which works fine for me. And it preserves the metadata, including the cover pic. So I'm a happy camper. :-)

If you are using a mac, then look up tuneskit audible converter.

Where is it? I see a couple of sites that say it's been discontinued; I don't see much of anything about the program and how it works. I'd like to compare it to aaxtomp3.

What would be the highest quality MP3 settings to convert to? I'm trying to back up my Audibles.

Either 64 or 96 kbps is what I use for audiobooks.
