If the magazine you want to listen to is produced and distributed by NLS, 
one can

1 download it off the site

2 unpack it to a folder on a thumb drive,

3 listen on your new player.

Note: your thumb drive can contain more than one publication. Just make sure 
each publication is unzipped to its own folder.

To access the bookshelf, press and hold down the play key, and then make 
your book selection.

Hope this helps some.

If an infinite number of rednecks riding in an infinite number of pickup 
trucks fire an infinite number of shotgun rounds at an infinite number of 
highway signs, they will eventually produce all the world's great literary 
works in Braille.
