I am having the same problem.. My old iPod used to sort them by artist... The new one does not... There has to be a fix for this... I was really hoping it was a firmware bug, but I dont think so since it has not been fixed yet.

The book still shows up in the rather unpractical "audiobooks" category in my iPod.
Isn't there any way to force DRM protected audio books to list in the music library?
