Audiobooks has disappeared from menu

I use it only for audiobooks. was working fine as recently as this morning. bought another book, tried to sync. not only did all the audiobooks vanish from the ipod (but not my itunes library) but the very category 'audiobooks' was somehow erased from the menu. strangely, the few podcasts i had downloaded long ago are still availabel on the ipod. also, the cpmputer does seem to recognize the connection to the ipod and provide the opportunity to 'sync'. many thanks inadvnce for your help

The easiest solution would be to plug in your ipod and click on your ipod in your itunes library. By doing so you should be on your contents tab. Click on the settings tab and then click on restore. This should add restore all your defaults on your ipod. Before you do all this; make sure you back up your podcast if you don't currently have them in your itunes library. If this was helpful to you in anyway please leave a comment and a good rate. Thank you!

I have an AA file that I downloaded from audible.com, it's a book. When I try to sync it to the Sony Walkman from Windows Media Play, I get an error. The error says "Windows Media Player cannot sync...


The "AA" file type is not supported in the NWZ MP3 players. However, you are still able to place audiobooks onto your player if you convert the file to one of the supported file audio formats: MP3. WMA, AAC-LC, and PCM. Remember that there are several iterations of MP3, such as variable bit rate and frequency range and the player does not play some of them.

What I do is that I pull the file into Audacity and convert it there. Another option is that if you can burn the audiobook onto a CD, you can then rip to WMP and then sync it to your player. That is how I get my language audiobooks onto my player. The last option, which I have never tried, is to get it into ITunes, then sync it to your player that way. ITunes will automatically convert the file before syncing it onto the player.

Hope that helps.

Just bought an 8G MP3 player today because I thought I could listen to audiobooks on it. after i got it home, it looks like it can only be used to read books on the screen. Is this correct? If so, I'll...


If it plays mp3's then you can listen to audiobooks, as long as they're in mp3. I don't have any experience listening to books, but I imagine that most would come as mp3's, if not the you should be able to convert them into mp3 format, as long as there's no evil DRM.

I just did a little research on audio books and apparently there's sites out there that sell drm free audiobooks, As I have never actually had any drm protected audio, I have no personal experience of trying to use it on mp3 players, but it wouldn't be the wisest business move to stop people putting the stuff they've bought onto their mp3 players.

Here's a link to a drm free audiobook site:

There's also plenty of drm removal software out there if you need it.

Downloaded books from the library won't play


I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.

Audiobooks won't go in the audiobook file


when you open My Computer, open the subfolders under music as well. this will show the Audio book folder. Then copy to it by d&d or by <copy> <paste>. If you are really brave try this.
1 right click Start
2. click explore
3 this opens the <file manager> so be careful here.
4. dbble click,< my documents>
5 dbble click <my music>
6 find the audio book folder.
7 find the book files you want to move.
8 click and drag and drop. or click the book files and go to top menu. there should be a <copy> command.
9 click <copy to>
10 browse for Audio book folder find and click ok
Lastly, check the format of the files. If they are MP3 or other windows audio when you select find and add tomy library they will show up in the music folders. To circumvent this jumble up
1 create new play list, name for Audio what ever you want
2 copy files to this playlist. it will then separate them from the rest of your media files and when you play music unless you select this folder it should not play as long as once you move them to the audio list you remove them from the music list by right click over file title and click <remove from list.>
should take less than 5 minutes

Audiobook to ipod


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.

Download audio book


I bought a MuVo V100 specifically because a sister uses it very successfully for audio books. I'm still learning because it doesn't seem easy to do, but she managed fine. So don't assume it won't work for books.

The icons are confusing to deal with but the book will be in the "folders." When you find Library A, you push the button thing IN. Then you scroll sideways until your title comes up.

I've done it myself but kind of accidentally. Can't do it twice the same way!
