The Best Way to Transfer Audible Audiobooks to USB

Unlike SD cards, Audible does not officially offer the option to download audiobooks directly to USB. The first thing that we have to make clear is that even if you download audiobooks during your subscription period and then somehow save those files to a USB drive, you still can't play those audiobooks on other devices. This is because Audible audiobooks are encoded in the AA or AAX file format, which is protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM). Since they cannot be downloaded directly, we have to ask help for a third-party tool to transfer the audiobooks to a USB drive and play them on other devices. So how to choose a powerful tool? We must start from our own needs and find tools to meet them.

1. First and foremost, we need to convert Audible's DRM-protected AA or AAX files into mp3 formats that are compatible with most devices.

2. Keep the original lossless sound quality and ID3 tag.

Considering the above factors, Any Audible Converter meets all the requirements. It not only supports converting Audible AA or AAX files to MP3 mode, but also to various other modes such as M4A/M4B.

More surprisingly, Any Audible Converter will keep the original chapters and ID3 tags after conversion and even allows you to part your audiobooks by chapters, lengths, and or segments. In short, Any Audible Converter can meet almost all your needs.
