What about unprotected DAISY books? is Book Wizard required for that, and if so, is the demo sufficient?

Margo:

As you've noticed, you have a demo of Book Wizard Reader on your PC.
That is the software we developed to read Daisy material. The Book Port
software works along with that program in order to send Daisy books to
your Book Port. That is why you need a key for the Book Wizard, rather
than Book Port.

The key costs around $10, plus shipping. This key will unprotect the
books and allow you to either read them on your PC, or send them to Book
Port.

I'm sorry if I've confused you further. I just didn't want you to try
sending a book, then run into that problem. If you were to send one now,
without the key, all you'll get is the Book Title, with a blurb that
says, "This book is copy protected."

Pam, okay, so, do I just call RFB and D to ask for the key to the book
wizard product?  I am a member of RFB and D.  so, how does Book
wizard figure into all this?  I know I have Book wizard now on my
computer but what is it and I'm confused about it and the book port and
don't I read the daisy books on the book Port?

Margo:

 In the case of RFB&D books, because they are Daisy format, you only
 want to send the ".opf" file. If you open Book Port Transfer, insert
the
 CD, then Book Port Transfer will point you to the correct file and
 that's the one you send. However, to do this, you would need a key
from
 RFB&D for the Book Wizard, which is the Daisy component to our
product.

>>> margo.downey@xxxxxxxxxxx 07/05/05 04:41PM >>> In order to determine what files constitute the book when ripping a CD, does an audiobook on CD usually just have one file or could it have several and if several, how would you know which to choose from? Same question for RFB and D books on CD. I've not read one of their books on CD so is there just one file on a CD and if not, how do you know which file to send to Bookport?

   You need to first rip the CD to an MP3 file, then send the MP3
file
 to
   the Book Port.

   I'd like to know if Bookport will play audiobooks say from a
   CD--sending the file or files from a CD.  Here's the scenario:  I
go
 to
   amazon.com and buy a harry Potter audiobook on CD.  Can I send
that
 type
   of file to Bookport?
