MP3 player-don't understand it!!

  AngeTheHippy 08:53 13 Aug 06

Morning Chaps,

My Son has given me an MP3 player(minus user manual..)he's fed up with. No brand name on it, it's 1/2Gb, and uploads from PC fine. No probs there. I can listen, fast-frwd etc also without problem, but what's REALLY bugging me is if for example I'm listening to a talking book (maybe 40 mins duration)I cannot for the life of me discover how, if I turn it off after say, 15 mins listening, power down then when powering up again and carry on from where I left off. Son isn't forthcoming, I don't think he used it that much to be honest. Found this model, click here , it's virtually identical to, but minus the FM radio. Please if anyone knows how to pick up where last left, please advise.

Thanks a lot,

No expert on this but you will need ebook reading software otherwise the player will start your file from the beginning each time

Perhaps you could split the large file into several smaller files before you load it onto your mp3 player. I guess someone will know a free software package (like Audacity) that will do this efficiently.

Thanks for this - don't think we're on the same wavelength... It's an audio file, not ebook.

What an absolutely fantastic bit of software!! Didn't know it existed! Seems easy enough, now for an afternoon of 'playing' !!

Thanks so much.

Sorry, I meant audio book not ebook!

click here is where I got audiobooks on the past and software to play on any mp3 player is included
