2 Ways to Burn Audible Audiobooks to CD

Audible provides millions of audiobooks with the special encoded AA and AAX format, as a result, any audiobooks purchased via cannot be played unless on the authorized devices, let alone burn the audiobooks to a CD. Till now, Audible audio files have been compatible with Apple and Android devices, Windows phone, Kindle Fire tablets, Windows and Mac computers, etc. But when it comes to burning Audible audiobooks to a CD, iTunes is the primary and only tool authorized by Audible to burn the encrypted audiobooks to a CD. Thus, if you play Audible audiobooks through iTunes, it is smooth to burn Audible audiobooks to a CD without any difficulty.

However, due to the encryption restriction, you are only allowed to burn each audiobook in your library at one time. If you encounter errors during the first burning, you will get the error message about the burn limit when trying to burn the audiobook again. Contact Audible customer service to deal with this problem will be cumbersome. But the problem will be resolved quickly as long as you try the TunePat Any Audiobook Converter, a professional audiobook converter.
