Good to know the guides work. I have once had the echo problem and wondered if it were mono versus stereo. Try stereo to see if it eliminates. I had thought the mono bug was fixed, but some problems appear to remain. So, stereo probably best for that reason as well.

Edit 3-06: An echo has been reported when playing some m4b files at slower speed (accidentally, at that). Click on iPod center wheel until you see Speed and Normal/Faster/Slow and rotate click wheel until you see normal instead of Slow.

No idea, then. Perhaps it is a particular CD. I have had the problem only on one audio book. Are you playing at faster speed?

chedabob--

Have you tried going into Edit/Preferences/Importing and change the "Import Using" setting to "AAC encoder"?

Since you already have an mp4 file, I think that you could rename it m4b, add it to iTunes, and that it would work.

The easiest is to use Markable which will take care of all the conversions (whether you have iTunes importing set to mp3 or AAC), rename the files, insert the new files in iTunes, and remove all the extraneous files for you. Well worth the $15. Try it free for five days and see if you don't agree.

Gotta be m4b or aa file. See guides in signature below on how to convert. Conversion will also make the file bookmarkable.

Try reading the guides instead of just renaming. You have to make a conversion. Try Guide 1, but since you appear to be a beginner, Recommend EZ Guide and MarkAble.

OK, try Guide 1. It is adaptable for mac. You will have to convert from mp3 to AAC then rename. Guide 1 has step by step instructions for how to use iTunes to do so. Good luck.
