Q. Why does mMy iPod display the apple logo upon turning it on.

A. Your iPod rests a little when turned off, but after a number of hours of being off, it goes completely off and into deep sleep. The amount of time before deep sleep is determined by the normal battery life of your iPod. When you awaken your iPod from deep sleep, it does a soft reset and reverts to a prior bookmark unless you have gone to menu and played another song before turning off your iPod.

Q. How do I get large numbers of mp3 files of one audio book to play in order?

A. See Moriond's Short Answer and Morionds follow up post on how to sort mp3s by track (look thru entire thread--a work in progress).

Q. How much space does an Audio Book require?

A. An AAC, 32kbps, 22,050 KHz sampling rate, (audible.com's best available quality format 4 download) uses approximately 14MB/hour. A longish (ten hours) audiobook is about 140 mb. That is to say, not enough to worry about. Even the smallest Nano has capacity for several audiobooks and a modest collection of photos and music. Usually audiobooks are in parts or sections. These parts can be removed when listened to. It is wise to have at least two or three audio books on your iPod to suit your mood, quality of the book, and companion.

HDI prevent book chapters / lectures from playing when I 'shuffle songs'

Audible.com or iTunes Store purchasedbooks do not enter shuffle

Homemade bookmarking (AAC/m4b or applescripted mac) files do not shuffle. See guides below on how to convert.

Other files can be kept out of shuffle by highlighting and then R clicking the file, choosing Get Info and then select Options Tab. Check both Remember playback position and Skip when shuffling.




This versatile window allows converting portions of a file by setting start and stop times, adjusting volume of low volume files/tracks, as well as set bookmarking and skip in shuffle for homemade files.

How do I get an audio book file to show in Audiobooks category?

Only audible.com aa files, iTunes audio book files, AND homemade AAC files whose extensions have been renamed m4b show up in Audiobook Category of iTunes and iPod.

Newer versions of iPod and iTunes with Audiobooks Folders require adding or dragging and dropping any file(s) or folder(s) directly to the Audiobooks Folders, not the Music Folders.

See guides linked in signature below, each link by source category, for tutorials on how to accomplish this.

Just one question with this: why is it necessary to hold down my shirt?

time stretching hard coding mp3s or other file types with sound touch dsp+foobar batch conversion up to 2x playback with normalized pitch.

one way to tell what speed suits the material is to play a bit through gomplayer, which lets you increase/decrease in increments of .1x

How do I get my audiobook files to play continuously?

I recently transferred my iPod from a PC (Windows XP) to a MacBook Pro (OS 10.7.2). My audiobooks uploaded from CD now stop after each individual file. I've adjusted multiple settings, but none will play continuously. What can I do?

I've tried that setting multiple times -- even once for all my audiobooks at the same time. They still play as individual files, stopping after each segment.

Are all the files "checked?" See if all the files have a check in the little square.

At the moment my iPod nano is at Apple for replacement, so I cannot look at it now. I mostly listen on my iPhone.

put your book into a playlist and play from there to see if that is a temporary fix.
