BB 8100 and

by airgrp / February 27, 2009 8:27 PM PST

I enjoy using my Blackberry to listen to music but can only get mp3 files to play. I also download audio books from in a formate ending in .AA (I think this is some sort of security thing - copy rites and so on).
Does anyone know how to break down these .AA files so I can play them on my BB. I had to get a little SanDisk MP3 player but i don't like having a second device when my phone should be able to accomplish...?

BB & Audible

I haven't tried this, but I know that Audible has 2 download formats -PC or Mac. I know that when I download an Audible book in the Mac mode for my daughter's Nano, I cannot then get it to work on my non-Apple mp3's -I must switch back to PC in the Audible Manager.

Hope that helps, I am getting a Blackberry soon!
