How to Convert Audible Audiobooks to MP3 Format
Audible.com is the most popular audiobook provider, and the seller offers a varied catalog of audiobooks that can be played on hundreds of mobile devices. However, not all devices are supported to play Audible audiobooks. When you try to listen to Audible audiobooks on an MP3 player or other applications, you will find that the audiobooks are not supported due to the different formats. All audiobooks from Audible.com are encrypted in "AA", and "AAX" (for Android or iOS devices) format under special protection, which is to prevent these audiobooks from copying and playing on unsupported devices. If you want to play an Audible audiobook on non-audible-approved devices, you have to change the file type of the Audible audiobook.
Converting Audible audiobooks to MP3 format should be your first choice. MP3 is the most common audio file type and is nearly compatible with all kinds of devices. Unfortunately, the Audible team will tell you that Audible audio files cannot be converted to MP3 or any other format if you search for the answer on the Audible Help Center. As we mentioned, to protect the right of content publishers and providers, Audible provides encrypted audiobooks for readers to play on limited devices. But don't worry about it. You can use a third-party's tool to convert Audible audiobook to MP3 format instead.
Various programs can be used to convert audiobooks, and it is hard for you to decide which one is better. A high-effective program should be the best choice for you when you want to convert an extensive catalog of audiobooks. TunePat Any Audiobook Converter is the program that we highly recommend.

If you don't want to download audiobooks from the Audible website to your computer and then convert them. TunePat also supports converting audiobooks directly from Audible Library. The supported range includes purchased audiobooks, audiobooks included under the Audible Plus service, and podcasts. It is also worth mentioning that the audiobooks included under the Audible Plus service can also be directly read and converted by TunePat without adding them to the Library. Below we will explain the process of converting audiobooks after adding them to Library.
Step 1 Log in to your Audible Account

Step 3 Select the Audiobooks You Want to Convert
If you are a regular user, you can go directly to the "Library" module to find the books you have purchased and want to convert. If you have an Audible Plus account, then you can browse the audiobooks under the "Plus Catalog", and then click the "Add to Library" button next to it to add it to the Library. Then click to access your Library. Click on the book you just added here, then select the "Add to list" button at the bottom right.
The book will be automatically read by TunePat in a pop-up window. If you need to continue selecting other audiobooks, please click the "Save to list" button. After selecting, you can click the "Convert" button in the task list module to perform batch conversion. If you only want to convert the book, just select the "Convert Now" button.
Step 4 View the Converted Audiobooks
Now you just need to wait for the conversion to complete, and then you can view the converted audiobook in the "History" module.
