Not sure if this has already be asked and/or addressed before. As the question states, I would like to transfer/download the audio files for some of my MobileEd courses to an MP3 player for use while I'm walking and still be "learning" as I walk. Thank you for any help.

On Windows, you have no access to the downloaded courses.

However, if you download the audio files on Android, you can grab them from the following folder afterwards (without root):

/mnt/sdcard/Android/data/com.logos.androidlogos/install/resourceBaggage

That's not entirely true. When you download the audio files in Logos, they're stored in your Logos WebCache folder as .mp3s. However, they're given random names. If you want to extract them, the easiest way is:

  1. Make a note of the current date/time.
  2. Clear any already downloaded files for this media resource.
  3. Download all the audio files.
  4. Copy all files created after the time noted in step 1 into another folder.
  5. Rename all those files to .mp3

Most of the audio files have fairly good .mp3 tagging so they should be fairly easy to play in track order, even with random filenames.

Hopefully with the information provided you can now achieve what you want.

For me when I want to do this I just download the audio within the Logos Mobile app to my phone for offline use.

First course changed to MP3 files (and it was only a 2 hour course)...however, when I listen to them on the MP3 player they are in a random order, therefore, this may all be a futile endeavor.

My thoughts when Faithlife came out with the audio file for the MobileEd courses was so that we could easily download the files to listen to while walking, driving, exercising, etc. I probably won't be taking the time (especially on the longer courses) to do as Mark said above, to make them usable. 

Logos/Faithlife, please make these audio files usable as MP3 files.

If you have a phone, they do play in the Logos App, when available.

Thank you for the suggestion of using the phone app...however...my phone does not have the memory capacity (and no way to expand it) to hold even a small set of audio files. That is why I would like them to be available in an MP3 format so that I can download them to it without having to manually rename each and every file and get them in the correct order so that I can listen to them while I'm doing my morning walk.
