Windows 7: Saving books on tape CD's to thumb drive

Saving books on tape CD's to thumb drive

I am addicted to books on tape which are on CDs. My new car doesn't have a CD player. I purchased a 32 GB thumb drive, formatted it to FAT32 and then downloaded each disc of the book (eight of them) to a separate folder numbered sequentially.

Each disc begins with track 1. The car plays disc 1's track 1 and then disc number two's track 1, etc. There is no way for me to rename the tracks.

Any ideas?

Much appreciated.

Enjoy your holiday weekend.

You can't change the file name immediately after download when they are sitting on your PC hard drive?

What's a sample file name immediately after download, including file extension?

I don't listen to audio books, but I'd be inclined to combine all 8 CDs of a given book into a single sound file.

I had to change the CD files to wave files. I then created 8 folders on the thumb drive. CD 1, CD 2, etc.

I saved the contents of disc 1 to the CD 1 folder, the contents of disc 2 to the CD 2 folder, etc.

When I played it in the car as I stated earlier it the contents were as 8 track 1's, then 8 track 2's, etc. So instead of track 2 from folder CD 1, after track 1 finished I got track 2 from the second CD in the CD 2 folder.

In other words, it didn't recognize the folders.

Thanks for getting back to me.

That is a whole lot cheaper than...
