Make audiobook go into books on iTunes

Recommended Posts

Hi, I downloaded an audiobook, but it didn't go into my books "folder" on iTunes, it went into music. And since it's over 6 hours long it will be quite pain to listen to it on the go and always make sure I remember where I was.

Do you know how I make it a podcast or "book"?

 

Thanks :)

from the Media Kind menu select Audio Book.

click the "Remember playback position" checkbox.

click OK.

 

the audio file will move from music to Books.

for long things your iPod remembers where you stop listening. the next time you play the book it will start from where you left off. the other feature is that if you sync your iPod to iTunes then play the book on your Mac it will play from where you left off on the iPod. after you stop the book in iTunes and if you remember to sync your iPod it will play exactly were you left off. amazingly this feature even works on the Shuffle.

 

yes if iTunes recognises it as a book. I've had so called long things on my iPod (30 min+) but it has always gone back to the beginning.

Found the workaround I was looking for. Converted it to ACC then renamed it to m4b and it went into the books folder.

But thanks any way ;)

Thanks, a lot easier than what I ended up doing ;)

Moral: Always give John time to think about it ... he'll come up with the answer you need ( if not the answer you want ) if you just give him a little time ;)
