by Kefa Olang

Transferring audiobooks to your Philips GoGear Vibe media player allows you to enjoy your favorite books in audio format no matter where you go. Before downloading audiobooks, you must first have a working Audible account with books to download, and AudibleManager, the software used to synchronize audiobooks to digital media players. Free samples and downloads purchased from Audible can be downloaded to the player quickly and safely.

Create an Audible account if you do not have one. A working account is required to download audiobooks to a Philips GoGear Vibe media player. After creating an account, follow the guided prompts to search for and download audiobooks to your account's library.

Download and install the free AudibleManager software.

3

Click the "My Library" tab in your Audible account to view downloaded audiobooks. Click the audiobooks you wish to transfer to your GoGear vibe, and then select "Enhanced" or "Format 4" from the "Format" column. Enhanced format produces higher-quality audio for improved sound.
