Q: I am Lucy and I am a big fan of Audible. I always spend most of my leisure time in listening to audiobooks from Audible. These days, I meet a problem. I want to upload Audible audiobooks to Google Drive so that I can access them from my phone, tablet, and other devices easily. But I find I cannot do that. I wonder the reason for it and how can I solve this problem. Thanks in advance.

Entering this information era, we have to admit that our eyes are too tired after a day's working and studying. Listening to Audiobooks has become a common and healthy entertainment since it can enable us to "read" books without using our eyes. Audible, owned by Amazon, sells audiobooks and other audios and draws most audiobooks listeners. But some limits on Audible audiobooks make them uneasy to store and stream. Some Audible users want to use the cloud like Google Drive to store and manage their Audible audiobooks. But they failed. What causes their failure and is there a way to import Audible Audiobooks to Google Drive? Just move to the next part and we will tell the satisfying answers.

Why people cannot upload Audible audiobooks to Google Drive directly

First of all, let's know more about Google Drive. Google Drive allows users to store and sync files via different devices. It is developed by Google in 2012. Now, it has owned 1 billion users all over the world. If we want to upload files to Google Drive, we'd better know about some rules of Google Drive files. It supports general files, Adobe files, Microsoft files, Apple files. The supported audio files include MP3, M4A, WAV, OGG. What about Audible audiobooks format?

Audible audiobooks are AAX/AA format, which are supported by limited devices, including iPod, Creative Zen, Kindle, and so on. But it is obvious that Google Drive cannot access these AAX/AA files. That's why a lot of people failed. However, we do not need to frustrate now, because I already find a good method to solve this problem.

Convert Audible audiobooks to Google Drive

The best method I find is to convert the AAX/AA Audible audiobooks to Google Drive-compatible formats. To do this, we need an Audible converter. I compared almost all of the converter I can find. Finally, I decide to recommend this one - ViWizard Audible AA/AAX Converter. This converter owns nearly all the functions related to Audible converting, while other converters either only support limited formats or output audio with poor quality. Later, I will give a brief introduction to this converter.

ViWizard can convert AA/AAX to many universal audio formats such as MP3, M4A, FLAC, AAC, OGG with 100X faster speed. Users can also choose the Lossless option to keep the original quality of the audiobooks. Besides, this tool does not need users to give the iTunes account authorization nor install the Audible app. It will retain the ID3 tags like the title, artist, author, and the chapter information of the audiobook. Users are allowed to edit the codec, bit rate, sample rate of their audiobooks files, but these things cannot be changed under the lossless option.

Only 3 simple steps are needed to use ViWizard AA/AAX Converter to convert Audible audiobooks to Google Drive.
