Import Audible Audiobooks to Windows Media Player

"Can I listen to Audible Audiobooks on Windows Media Player? WMP doesn't appear to support AA/AAX files. How can I get the audiobooks into WMP? If there is a program that can help me with this, that would be so great!"

For long-time Audible Audiobook users, downloading the AA/AAX files for offline listening and replay is a common option — it allows Audible users to listen to their favorite audiobooks whenever and wherever they like, without being reliant on the internet or anything else. There are numerous popular media players in the app/device store, including an MP3 player, a smartwatch, iTunes software, and the most widely-used media software on the PC – Windows Media Player.

WMP (Windows Media Player) is a free and secure media player that is installed by default on most Windows computers. WMP is so powerful that it can play practically any audio format, including Audible's AA/AAX files. Excitingly, importing Audible Audiobooks to Windows Media Player may just require a few simple steps; for your convenience, we've listed the two complete methods available below.

Method One: Add Audible AA/AAX Audiobooks to WMP

We'll need a program called Audible Download Manager for this step. You may effortlessly download .aa and .aax files from Audible with this program, and the tool will then help you sync Audible Audiobooks to Windows Media Player automatically.

You can download this program from Google if you don't have it on your computer.

Step 1 Launch Audible Download Manager.

Step 2 Select “General Settings”.

Step 3 Check the option before Windows Media Player.

Step 4 Click “Save Settings”.

Step 5 Audible Audiobooks will be automatically synced when downloaded.

Tip: If the WMP on your PC fails to sync, please import the AA/AAX files into the program manually.

Step 1 Click “Options”.

Step 2 Find “Import Audible Titles…” > “Import into Windows Media Player Library”

Step 3 Choose “Browse”, and locate the folder that you specify to save the Audible downloads.

For most people, Method One is effective. However, Audible Inc. has announced that the Audible app and Audible Download Manager for Windows will be discontinued. Users that have previously installed these apps will be able to use them until July 31, 2022. Method Two is the most reliable way to transfer Audible Audiobooks to Windows Media Player now or later in this case.

Method Two: Import Audible MP3 Audiobooks to WMP

Method Two is another effective way to add Audible Audiobooks to WMP, but it requires you to download and convert these Audible files to MP3, which is a common format used by many media players. If you convert Audible Audiobooks to MP3, you can listen to them whenever and wherever you prefer. As a result, TunePat Any Audiobook Converter is strongly suggested.

For Audible customers, TunePat Any Audiobook Converter is a useful tool. It's made to download and convert Audible Audiobooks from the AA and AAX formats to MP3, M4A, and M4B. The application can convert audiobooks at a pace you've never seen before — 100X! TunePat can also help you preserve a set of ID3 tags and chapter information with the high-speed conversion. After importing them into WMP, you can easily categorize these files.
