Playing CD Audio Books on the JK2001.

Post by Mike » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:00 am

SUPPORT DUDES, or anyone else. One of the "features" of the JK2001 is there there is on CD player. No worries of a CD skipping on the trail, no water or dust ingress of the unit. And who uses CDs anymore? Well - ME!

I have a number of Audio Books on CDs. I wanted to move them over to the JK2001, so as a test I loaded one on the Micro-SD card. The JK2001 Music Player cannot find the Audio Book. I am uncertain why. So I thought I would ask. Out here in Far West Texas we measure distances in hours traveled, like 5 hours to the next major city. A good Audio Book eats the miles away.

Of note, I have the Audio Book in the folder tree as so. There are 5 CDs in the book. Hmmmm ignore the funny ⌂ symbols, the ASCII place holder is doing something strange.

I wondered if there are too many layers in the folder tree? Or perhaps Music Player doesn't read FILE.CDA files? Each CD has about 100 files on it, and they are labeled Name1 through Name99 sequentially. I guess I could rename them all , disk 2 to Name100 to Name 199, disk 2 to Name200 to Name 299, etc. But I hesitate to screw it up, so perhaps someone here has the answer.

Thanks all.

Hi Mike,

I think you will find this link interesting: https://www.quora.com/What-app-should-I ... -cda-files Apparently CDA is not an actual data file but a link to a position on the physical CD. You will probably want to rip the CD to your computer in MP3 format. Here are a few links to steps for doing this:

Rip CD to MP3 with Windows Media Player: https://www.library.kent.edu/files/SMS_WMP_RIP.pdf
Rip CD to MP3 with iTunes on Mac or PC: http://osxdaily.com/2018/03/01/how-rip-cd-mp3-itunes/

Cheers,
Support Dudes
