Response to: How does the shuffle recognize Audiobooks?

Plus does the shuffle resume well?


For Audiobooks this is a must feature.
If you get a call while you're listening
it can be a real pain to lose the place
where you left off.


Does the pause stay paused even if it
goes into powersave?


Just curious.

    The shuffle has very good resume features. For all tracks, it remembers where you were, even in low power states. For audiobooks, it keeps a bookmark of where you were listening, even if you move to a different track. The bookmark even syncs to your computer and back. Details here.

      That's very interesting, thanks for the link. Is there any way to make an audiobook which the shuffle will recognise from an audio CD audiobook?

        There is a little program called "Markable" That will take auidobook CD's rip the files, merge them into one or two large files and then convert them to .m4b format using itunes. Its a great program. I never buy software, but after trying the evaluation version of Markable I dished out the small amount of cash and bought it!!!

        See the comment above from "mindead", with links to instructions for making tracks behave like audiobooks.

        • How can I get shuffle to stop shuffling some of my playlist?

          I spend 30 min. nitely renaming the tracks in my playlist to a certain order,(alternating podcasts with songs)I right click "ipod" in source list, then copy to play order.
          But when I play it back, it reorders about half of the tracks sorted by artist, or no sort at all. Any suggestions?

            I have tried a variety of strategies to get me tracks to play in order but have not succeeded yet. Did you find a solution?
