Will I be able to use my Audible books on the Kindle with my Macintosh. It looks like you need Audible Manager, which is not available for Macintosh.

Thanks,
Ken

I'm on Windows & play my Audible stuff in iTunes, I don't use their manager. I'd assume it's the same on a Mac.

Check their help section & it'll tell you how to set iTunes up. They should have a few free files you can download & try before spending any money.

I do use iTune when putting Audible content on my iPod, but the Audible support page for the Kindle said that the Audible Manager software is necessary. Audible does not let you register a Kindle as a device for the Macintosh platform.

Well that sucks. I'd maybe give Audible a call, I've called them twice in the 3 years I've been a member & they were very helpful.

The Audible Kindle user guide says you only need a Windows machine running Audible Manager to authorize the Kindle, after that you can copy files using your Mac, perhaps you can find a friend that runs Windows just so you can authorize the Kindle.


Hope it works out.
