The admhelper.adh file is a protocol that assists the Audible Download Manager software in downloading your Audiobook(s) from Audible.com. It assists Audible Download Manager in taking all the pieces of your Audiobook file, pulling it from your My Library page, and importing it into either Audible Manager, iTunes, or Windows Media Player.

In the following table, you can find a list of file information that is associated with .adh extension.
