Where are you getting your audiobooks? I have never had the problem you described, and I’ve been using iTunes to manage audiobooks from Audible.com for at least 5 years.

Christopher,
Most of the audiobooks I have are from ChristianAudio.com. While the majority of their newer titles are in the m4b format, some of the older ones were in mp3 format. Those were the ones I had to convert and rename, so they’d show up in audiobooks rather than music.

If you select all the mp3 files that comprise your audiobook and then select Get Info –> Options –> Media Kind (Change from Music to Audiobook), all your files will now show up under Audiobooks.

I just wish there was an Audiobook tab to allow more granular control of how audiobooks are transferred to the iPod.

Michael,
Is this specific to Mac or PC?
