    Audible Manager and Windows 10, help transfering books to Sansa Clip

    Hi All!
    My wife uses a Sandisk Sansa Clip mp3 player to listen to audio books from Amazons Audible.
    I was hoping that the new Audible Windows 10 app would let me transfer the audible books to her Sansa Clip, but it doesn't.
    The Windows app just downloads the books, which are very large files, to an obscure location on my SSD, and I am unable to change the download location or transfer them to her device.
    Because the Windows app is useless to me, I must use the old clunky piece of software called Audible Manager.
    When I open Audible Manager, I must open my library from the internet, but when I click on "my library" the program opens up Edge by default instead of Chrome, and because Chrome is running in the background I keep on getting errors.
    Anyone out there with the same problem that might know a simpler way of transferring books to her mp3 player?

    Can you just use file explorer to transfer the files from the SSD to the Clip?

    When I download a book using the Audible Windows 10 app, it puts the file in a temporary folder somewhere on my SSD and I can't even locate it. I can delete the file using the app, but I can't find its location. I've searched for it using a program called "Search Everything", the program see it, but when I try to locate it, I can't. I have ticked the "show hidden files" in explorer, but still can't find it.
    The search program finds it, and there seems to be 2 for some reason, but I can't get at it.

    Try looking in the Users > Public folder somewhere under Audible. Also the two files may just be because the book is so large that it splits into more than one file (that's just my guess).

    Hi, I found where files are stored by doing a search on "aax", after downloading a book, My files are stored at

    C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\Packages\AudibleInc.AudibleforWindowsPhone_xns73kv1ymhp2

    You won't be able to play these files on a mp3 player. You'll need a converter. I use M4VGear. Also OverDrive is a good player as it supports bookmarks so you can easily get back to the point were you were listening. OverDrive is aimed a using library audio books, but it will also play mp3's.

    Instruction for Locating OVERDRIVE Audio Files

    For some reason my Windows 10 (Surface Book) laptop deleted my old shortcut but I eventually managed to find the path again:

    This PC > Music > My Media > Overdrive

    There are folders with long codes listed there. If you search through those (most will probably be empty) the MP3 audio files should be easy to spot.
