Audio Books

Does anyone know if there are any audio books that zune does support or if there is a way to convert audio books to play on the zune?  Thanks for your help.

It depends what type of audio books. Most are in open format (e.g. books on CDs or in MP3 format).

Those can be played on the Zune, just like any other audio file. I have listened to books on CD in that way.

However, some audiobooks are in proprietary format, like Audible. Zune does not support those formats. It can only play audio files in MP3, AAC, or WMA format.

I have an audiobook on my Windows Media Player that I downloaded from the library.  I can not get my Zune to recognize the file and sync it.  Is there any way to get Zune to recognize this file?

Never argue with a fool. People might not know the difference.
