[bookport] Re: Converting Overdrive books to MP3.

Hi Sandy,

Sorry that I sounded snippety. I zeroed in on the last part of the paragraph and I overreacted to your answer. I saw "so, how do I convert to MP3? Or isn't it possible after all." Your answer, "It isn't possible." waved a red flag in my face, and being the rabid bull that I sometimes am...

Anyway, my apologies,

Regards,

Don...

Don, we were saying that you couldn't convert the files directly with Windows Media Player. Even as I type, I am converting said files with Sound Taxi. If anyone knows how to set the bit rate and such things, please write me off list and tell me. Now I wonder... Will it convert Real Player music? ...But that is for another list...

Lana,

Clear and honest, perhaps, but totally incorrect!

Sound Taxi, from www.soundtaxi.info, WILL convert Overdrive books to MP3 at much faster than "real-time" speed, period!!!

I quote, in part,  from the Sound Taxi site:
    Q: "Can I convert DRM protected WMA, M4P or iTunes files?"
A: "Yes, you can convert WMA, AAC, M4P files that are protected with Digital Rights Management (DRM)."
    Q: "Is it illegal to convert DRM protected files with SoundTaxi?"
A: "No, technically SoundTaxi does not circumvent Microsoft's or Apple's iTunes DRM protection. Microsoft's DRM protection system is unprotecting the protected DRM audio files."

You may download a full-featured demo version at the above link before you buy the whole thing for $15. I've used Sound Taxi over a year to convert files for my wife with NO, that's N O, problem!

I have no fiscal or personal interest with the makers or retailers of Sound Taxi software. Just passing on the "rest of the story" to all bookport users.

Warm regards,

Don Bomer...

plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me
in earnest, you will find me when you seek me. 14 I will be found by
you," says the Lord.
