I have a mp3 player which is suppose to support ebooks. I have put lots of ebooks on the disk. But when I go into the ebook mode and want to start a book the folders with the mp3 files is empy. Its like it doesnt show .mp3 files. However if I choose music mode I can play all the mp3 files on the disc. I have one folder for each ebook with lots of mp3 files in each folder.

Do ebooks need to be in a certain format or someting?

The mp3 player Im using is just called "MP3/WMA Player with Radio, model MP714AF".

Cheers Wox

That depends on the folder structure of your MP3 player - maybe it cannot find files inside a subfolder, or 'eBook mode' is looking in a different folder than 'Music mode'.

You can also use MakeitOne MP3 Album Maker pack/join your MP3 files in a single file - whilst still allowing full playability, tag editing and unpacking.

Unlike similar programs MakeitOne MP3 Album Maker allows you to join the MP3 files and unpack them back to their original state without losing quality.

MakeitOne MP3 Album Maker is freeware.

  • Hey, I tried putting the mp3 files in the root folder and all kinds of different folders. I also tried to put in .wav files, but it didnt find that either. When I press "ebook" I just see the folder structure, but when I go into the folders they just appear empty...this is very weird... – user20414 Dec 6 '09 at 18:57
