A playaway is a small pocket sized audiobook that is pre-loaded with a title, ready to listen to.
All you need is a set of headphones to plug into the playaway or a cable to connect it to a set of speakers if you prefer.
Files that contain the .m4b file extension are used to store audiobooks that are downloaded from Apple iTunes Store. The .m4b file uses Apple FairPlay DRM (digital rights management) to prevent a user from playing the audiobook on unauthorised computers and/or devices.
Programs that can open a .m4b file include iTunes, Windows Media Player and Roxio Creator.
An MP3 audiobook is an audiobook that has been optimized for download (compressed, making it a smaller file).
These files are compatible with many devices such as iPods, mobile phones and computers and are easily transferrable to any MP3 player.
