This guide will show you the detailed steps how to convert your Audiobooks to mp3 format so that you can enjoy it on any music players or phones freely.
An Audiobook is an audio recording of the contents of a book for you to listen on your digital player, just like people enjoy CDs and broadcast. The file formats of Audiobook are mp3, wma, real and audible. It is possible to convert Audiobook file into .mp3 format with DRM conversion software.
Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a digital security encryption that blocks the copy of media files such as Audiobooks to un-supported players. The DRM restrictions protect popular audiobook including AA, M4B and WMA, and those were made to restrict the sharing of copyrighted audio and video files.
The easiest way to remove the DRM protection is via DRM conversion software. Here we will use Aimersoft DRM Converter. It’s best noted for its fast speed in converting DRM videos and audio such as m4p and wma into mp3, wav and wma. This can also convert Audiobook rapidly.
