Please try my latest Ebook Project

Over this past weekend I discovered that Kindle 4 PC has an undocumented feature. It turns out that you can embed an audio file in a Kindle ebook in such a way that it can only be read on K4PC. I made one as an example, and I'd really appreciate it if everyone would download and try the ebook on your PC.

This might possibly work on Kindle4Mac, but I doubt it. So far as I know, Windows Media Player is required. it also has to be a later version of WMP, or this won't work.

Please try this and tell me if it works. You can download it here.

BTW, it would also help if you could forward this to anyone you know who has K4PC.

It works, but I didn't like the music. How about some AC/DC - For Those About To Read, We Salute You

Does not work for me

It plays but no sound.

When I click to start music, first I get message box:
"The file you are attempting to play has an extension (.wma) tat does not match the file format. Playing the file may result in unexpected behaviour."

After clicking "Yes" file is played (you can see if you open WMP), but no sound was present.

Indeed.

The warning message that domas mentiones pops up and, after permission to proceed, wma is played alright and can be stopped and started repeatedly. (If one really wants to .)

Well, for me it first opened in Mobipocket Reader, not K4PC, which I do have. When I clicked it did go to Windows Media.

I'll be honest - that message about the "extension not matching" was enough to stop me. How would I know it was not a virus/trojan? I figured I'd let the rest of you test it!!! Instead I a good book.

I saw the same message, clicked "Yes" and got the music, but no vocals.
