ITunes :: Audiobooks Are Not Appearing In 'BOOKS' Section Of My Library
Feb 2, 2012
Recently downloaded audiobooks are not appearing in the 'BOOKS' category, but in the main music library. I have tried dragging and dropping so that they appear there, but to no avail. Have also changed the info so that it reads 'books' or 'audiobooks' but they will not appear in the Books section of my library which makes finding them tricky. I have previously downloaded titles and they have been recognised as Audiobooks and been properly categorized. (These recent titles have been downloaded from Audiogo. )
In Mavericks, I transferred all of my books from iTunes to iBooks (File > Move Books from iTunes). However, none of the books appear in my bookshelf/library when viewing in iBooks. I tried buying a new book while in iTunes, it downloaded, but it does not appear in my library either. These books are accessible in iBooks via a search but cannot be seen in the library.
Info: Mac mini, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4), 2.6 GHz i7
I just recently purchased two audio books from iTunes store and I'm having a problem backing them up. I know I can make a data DVD, but that is not what I want to do, because they are audio files. My main issue is that I want to burn the audiobooks to audio CD, but the quality always comes out very poor. I have been searching around to see if there was a way to make itunes burn to a disc image, but I was out of luck. Basically, I only have CD-RW and DVD+R DL and DVD-R blank discs, so I would need to go out and buy CD-R, if it were my only option. So far, I have tried to burn to CD-RW at both maximum possible and 2x, both of which had poor audio quality, when I tested in VLC, since iTunes would not play any of the tracks straight from the disc. How can I burn audio CDs to CD-RWs from iTunes without the resulting audio having static sound, or is there a script I can type up to have iTunes think a disc image is a blank disc, or should I just buy CD-Rs?
I have many audiobooks that are in iTunes and on my iPod. They're in the correct audiobook locations for itunes and ipod. My problem is that on the ipod, when I go to audiobooks, it's just a list of individual tracks. Many of them have been copied from my CDs so there's many files per audiobook (that's how I like it--so I'd rather not put them in one gigatic file per book.
Right now, my audiobooks just show a list, like if I went under | Music > Songs | and it just lists all my songs on the ipod.Is there a way to set up the audiobooks on an ipod so that when I get on my ipod I can go...
Audiobooks > Albums > (show list of books) Harry Potter > (shows list of Harry Potter book) Half-Blood Prince > Chapter One
Have created a smart playlist for audiobooks that I haven't listened to. However since a restore of my library, most of them are showing up. Is there a way to mark audiobooks as listened to, just like music/tv shows etc?
Audiobooks no longer play on any device that I have: ipods, MacBook, iphone... The first 5 minutes or so play and then the track completely stops. The behaviour is slightly different on different devices. On the MacBook, an audiobook plays for around 5 minutes and then skips on to the next book.
On the iPods, an audiobook plays for around 5 minutes and then just stops. On the iPhone the volume stops after around 5 mins though the track keeps playing forwards. This must be a problem with the iTunes 10.6.3 software?
How to import AudioBooks from Macbook OS 10.4.1 onto an Ipad2?
I have many audiobooks which I am currently attempting to have re-loaded via the Apple Support network and have requested that these Audiobooks purchased in good faith between 2008 - 2009 be made available for download on our recently purchased Ipad2 via ITunes. This download procedure has worked very well for the 18 songs purchased in the same period. However, I have followed a discussion on the Apple Support community by TASA posted on the Nov 13 2011 and have made a similar polite request to the Apple Support afficionados, so far with no success. My question is this How can i transfer the Audiobook files which appear as m4b across to the Ipad2. I cannot sync the MacBook because the operating system is a mismatch. Attempting to use a camera connection kit by Apple and using an SD card to copy a single audi file has not worked. What other recourse of action is there?
It is all very well suggesting that Audiobooks can only be downloaded once, as has been mentioned by a discussion pundit. However this was not in the Terms and Conditions from 2008, of which I have a copy.
When I download audiobooks, they come in parts, i.e. CD1, CD2, etc. To make life easier, I join them back into ONE file so when I play it on my iPod, it's listed as one song rather than 100. Make sense so far?
When I join them, the play back time is off. So if the whole audiobook is 12 hours, but chapter 1 is 45 minutes, the play time for the entire audiobook, that I joined, is 45 minutes. When I play it on the iPod, it will play PAST the 45 minute mark, but I cannot rewind or fastforward because the ticker just stays there. On iTunes, it will not play past the 45 minute mark.
I've tried to manually change the time in iTunes but it doesnt change. Does anyone have experience with this/tips to help? I have a lot of audiobooks that are really affected by this.
Most audio books, I either want to listen to only once, or at long intervals. I would like to do the following: Create a playlist to sync to my iphone: The smart playlist has the following criteria:
A: The genre is AudioBooks.
B: The playcount is 0.
C: Pick 25 at random
D: Include partially played books.
The latter is the show stopper. How do I make sure that a book I started to listen to one time is still on the playlist the next time after I sync my phone. I'm willing to have a second playlist of "Books in progress" If it can't be done directly any pointers to an applescript for this?
I have been using Aperture for a bit now, and sometimes some Images just duplicate themselves and pop up at the top of the library. These duplicates have the same size as the screen of my camera, they are not ery good quality. Yet when you delete them, the actual image cannot find its master file anymore, to do its caculations. I then have to start all over....importing, (if I didn't format the compactflash card yet), editing, tagging etc.
For some reason, collections/videos that appear in the iTunes U section cannot be sorted by name. Even if you add a sortname to the videos, they can't seem to be sorted. What gives? I've had a few things that came in out of order (it looks like some files were re-released and with about 50 items, it makes it a chore to hunt down the correct file to view.
My daughter has a dance project in school. She wants a song to start at the beginning, stop at 1:05, start again at 2:07 and go to the end. I tried creating a seperate file so I could do starts and stops on both to do this, but the playlist sees it as a duplicate.
Is it possible to move an item from the "More" section of the Contextual Menu up to the main section? In the attached screen shot you can see an item "Snag Path Unix" at the very bottom. I use this function about 100 times a day and it is very inconvenient that I have to go through a submenu for that.
I have a few hundred books in my iTunes. Everytime I add more books they are by default added to all my devices. Is there a way to do a mass select or un-select in the book selection of iTunes. I normally only keep the current book I am reading on my device. You can select and un-selected in mass for the music just not the books which seems strange.
My iTunes library has apparently filled my entire iMac (according to the computer I have over 97 days' worth of music). I would like to know 1) how to properly save my iTunes library to an external hard drive and 2) how to use iTunes so that it uses the library on the external drive.
iTunes 9.2 just came out. I am trying to add all my PDF's as books but is becoming really daunting. For some reason it will not let me add whole folders of pfd's using import (apple+O). I can import if I select a bunch but its time consuming since I have levels and levels of PDF's. An easier way of importing them. Also was this intended or maybe a bug?
