There are some other methods you can take, like the following two ways I'm going to share with you. But the following two methods are useful only for certain Android/Kindle Fire devices and the Audible books transferred are still DRM-protected Audible files.

2. Move Audible Books to SD card on Audible

Some Android users may come across this error message when trying to download Audible books to Android: "SD Card required. Please make sure the SD card is mounted in your device."

1. If your Android device doesn't have an SD card slot, you are unable to take this method.

2. It is not advised to download Audible books to SD card on the Android Audible app since you may experience playback issues with your audiobooks.

3. Audible audiobooks which are saved in SD card by taking this method can only be played on limited compatible Audible devices but not other more devices such as cars, televisions and portable MP3 players because Audible audiobooks are all DRM-protected in special file format AAX, AA, or the Audible new format AAXC.

3. Move Audible Books to SD Card on Kindle Fire

If you have a Kindle Fire tablet that can be inserted with an SD card, you can also move Audible books to SD card on Kindle Fire. The Kindle Fire tablet requires OS 5.2.1 or higher. And this is only compatible with the following Fire Tablets:

Fire (7-inch touch screen);
Fire HD 8 (8-inch touch screen);
Fire HD 10 (10.1-inch touch screen)

Step 1 Swipe down from the top of the screen and choose Settings.

Step 2 Find Storage and tap it.

Step 3Tap the toggle next to Download audiobooks to Your SD Card.
