1.       Establish an account. Choose Windows as your operating system. Choose to use OneClickDigital Media Manager as your download method. Choose Other as your Portable Device Type.

6.       When file is downloaded, Click “Open” . (This may look different due to differences in browsers.)

7.       Media Manager should open. Log in if required.  Your title should automatically download and transfer to your device if the device is plugged in.  If it does not, you may need to close the Media Manager, open it again, and click on Download/Transfer if nothing happens automatically.

8.       Once transferred, your audiobook will appear on your device as a number of files. The last part of each file indicates a chapter number, or IN for introduction, AN for afternote, etc.

TIPS –For the first time, try a children’s title since it will take less time to download for testing. Your mp3 player may need to be set to “Media Transfer Protocol” mode or MTP Mode.  On a Sandisk Sansa device, for example, instructions for doing this can be found here: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/207/~/verifying-and-changing-the-usb-mode-of-the-device-to-msc-or-mtp
