I bought an Audio book when I downloaded on Ipod it wiped all my music out.
When I bought an audio book on iTunes and downloaded it to my Ipod (80GB) it wiped out all my songs. I have them stored on my iTunes and when I try to put them back on my Ipod they won't transfer. How can I get my music back on my Ipod?
Re: I bought an Audio book when I downloaded on Ipod it...
Hey, It seems like you have some problem with syncing. Try going on your ipod screen in itunes then tick the box that says "manually manage music". Try coping the auido book and then your songs it should work.

As iPods continue to grow in popularity, more people are looking for an easy way to get music on their iPods. Here's how to easily download music from your computer to your iPod.
1. Plug your iPod into your
USB Port. You will see a message on your screen" An iPod has been
detected, but the iPod software is not installed. Install the iPod
software from the CD that came with your iPod or download the iPod
Software Updater (see resource link).
2Click on OK, and download
your software. Download iTunesSetup.exe (see resource link). After
download click Run. You can move media from your computer to your
iPod in a matter of seconds. iTunes has more than 8 million songs at
.99 cents per download; 35,000 Audio books, 1000 TV shows, and 100,000
3After download restart your computer, click the iTunes icon that has been placed on your desktop, register your iPod. Select, "automatically sync songs to my iPod" to allow iTunes to auto sync your iPod to match your music library and playlist each time you connect to your computer. Then click done, and that's how easy it is to get music from your computer to your iPod.

If you don't already have itunes on your computer you will need to go to www.apple.com and download the latest version. It is a free download with onscreen instructions that are fairly easy to follow. If you have difficulties with the download you may need to disable or shut off your anti-virus software for the download to complete properly.
I found a helpful article about adding music to itunes on the apple support page for you as well.
ARTICLE NUMBER HT1473 Adding content on your computer to iTunesiTunes lets you add digital audio and video files on your computer directly to your iTunes library. You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or Audible.com (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. Video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format can also be added to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
From the File menu, choose one of the following choices:
Add to Library
Add File to Library
Add Folder to Library
Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add
If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library", iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. Then adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes preferences. After you have all of your desired music into itunes; connect your ipod and sync it to itunes. If you're unfamiliar with syncing you can go to the same www.apple.com/support and go to http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1351 This article will teach you about the different ways to sync your ipod. Hope all this info was useful to you. CHEERS :)
That is the problem. iTunes will only allow you to put audiobooks in that section if they were bought from the iTunes store. It's very annoying, but i suggest just making a playlist to hold all the files. iTunes doesn't let you set the type as "Audiobook" for files.
this happens sometimes on the initial use after the upgrade, what may be happening to make the application hang is that itunes is trying to access the internet for the music store causing the hang, especially if youre not on line when syncing.
I think there is an option in the menu to turn off the store.
If you still get problems, uninstall itunes, download and reinstall again.
