How to play Audiobooks on portable audio players

We all love portable audio players: Zune, BlackBerry, mobile phone, etc. We have to admit that they are all powerful music player besides its incompatibility with iTunes M4B files. iTunes M4B files are under DRM protection and limited to some particular media players to protect copyright.

Therefore, we need the help of Ondesoft Audible Converter , which is capable of converting any kinds of audiobooks into plain mp3 files and removing DRM protection.
