While that gives you 3 different ways, the one you'll use might depend on your machine and patience.
I love audio books since i don't have time to sit and read a book. But I don't want to jog with a cd player I want to use my MP3 player. How can I copy an audio book cd to mp3 so I can listen with my mp3 player.
The simplest way would be to use Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, or a similar program to rip each disc - just as you would a music CD. Most books have separate tracks every 3 minutes, so users here have found it best to label each disc as a separate folder by either author or (some form of) book title: Smith 01, Smith 02, etc. Otherwise, if you transferred all 100+ little files at once as a single batch, many players would play Disc 1, Track 1 followed by Disc 2, Track 1, etc.
Also, be aware that many libraries have downloadable books (although those do NOT work with iPod brand players). If you do have an actual iPod, you might look into Audible.com - the transferring is easy and the files take up very little space.
Hope that helped!
