I think Ipods are the only players that Rockbox even supports that could
play an audible book in their native firmware. A couple Irivers can, but I
think new flash models I haven't heard of. This is according to the audible
device list on their site. I used to subscribe to their service and have a
few books I haven't gotten to yet, guess I haven't taken the time to do the
manual rerecording process or whatever, burn to CD and rip back in.
