Audiobook Category

Recommended Posts

I've been looking all over and no one seems to have a definitive answer for this. I'd like to know how the iPod/iTunes decides what to put in the Audiobook category and, more importantly, how to turn off that part of the sync. It's not just Audible stuff that goes in there because many in that category are actually podcasts. It's also not just .aa or . m4a files either. This is clearly a smart playlist but it's not user-definable and only shows up on the iPod. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Anything that is Protected AAC format is seen as an Audiobook by iTunes and the IPod.

I think this is only part of the algorithm because I get unprotected AACs placed in that list as well. IMHO, I think part of the algorithm is based on track length, which is why some podcasts also show in that list.
