    MP3's in the Audiobooks area on an iPod?

    I have a large number of BBC radio shows and audio books on my iPod. Because they are not bought via iTunes, they show under the music section on my iPod rather then the Audiobooks area. Does anyone know how I can get them under "Audiobooks" instead? I set the genera to Audiobook in the hope that would work but it made no difference.

    IIRC, you need to use a program such as MP3Tag to set the ITUNESMEDIATYPE tag to "Audiobook". This only works for MP4 / AAC files though, so you would have to convert the MP3s into this format first.

    Alternatively, you could make the audiobooks show up under Podcasts by setting the following tags (link).

    Code:
    ITUNESPODCAST: 1
    ITUNESPODCASTURL: http://www.example.com/
