Audible

I was looking at my audiobook library this morning and noticed that the catalog only listed two books in a series that has six books, and I distinctly remember listening to the whole series some time ago. Look on my audible library at audible and sure enough, they were there. When I compared the number of books that I bought from audible with the number that I had in my books library, I found I was missing around 30.

So, I pulled up OpenAudible (an excellent tool if you have a lot of audible audiobooks), synced it up and told it to download all my books. A few hours later, all my audible audiobooks were downloaded into a fresh folder. I did a side by side comparison between OpenAudible and books (made a bit more difficult because the two programs didn't sort the title exactly the same) and found 32 audiobooks not in my books library. Very odd.

Looking at the missing books, I would say that about half were books that had the same title as a book in the books library, but a different author, so my guess is those books got deleted by the removed duplicate books command that I invoked several years ago. I suspect many of the rest were a format issue.

By format issue, in 2016 when Apple dropped support of audiobooks in playlist, I got around it by converting to mp3 files and then when I had listened to the mp3, I deleted them from the library, leaving just the audible format file. I suspect that I converted those books, but forgot to also import the audible format file. Last year, at this time, when I got a carplay capable car entertainment center, I purged the mp3 files.

Sigh. Well, all is well that ends well.

Now, to get back to the issue that caused me to page through my library, i.e. trying to find a couple of audiobooks to give me a change of pace in my up next list.

My problem is I have audible ebook companions. I have about 140 and around 30 of the audibles are no longer linked to the ebook even tho they are still advertised as audible companions on amazon. Makes me mad for i read and listen at the same time and audible and amazon can not fix it or they do not want to.

I generally listen in the car, so whispersync has never appealed to me. I did always wonder how robust the process is though. Have you tried re-downloading both the eBook and audiobook?

WhisperSync is one of those things that is great when it works, and frustrating when it doesn't. Mostly it does, but sometimes it fails. Frustratingly, it can fail in either direction - book to audible or audible to book. It's most annoying, however, when it fails book to audible, because it's harder to skim to the right place in an audio book.

Whenever I've had issues with audiobook companions (which happens surprisingly often), I have contacted Amazon support. I tend to get bounced around to Kindle support and/or Audible support, but eventually I reach someone who tells me they need to manually update my Kindle ebook on their end. After that the audiobook and ebook work together again.
