Opening AA files

Did your computer fail to open an AA file? We explain what AA files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your AA files.

What is an AA file?

AA stands for audible audio. Files that contain the .aa file extension normally contain audio audio books.

The AA file format allows for the storage of spoken audio words, chapter markers, bookmarks and other audio book features. AA files are commonly used on iPods, Kindles and other portable media devices.

In some cases an AA file can be converted into an MP3 file in order to make it more versatile for playback on a broader range of media devices.

The .aa file extension is also used by a variety of disc imaging programs. These AA files contain disc images that have been created by the program. This AA file format is very similar to the more popular ISO file format.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
