Issue with Audiobook & iCloud Upload

I decided to put everything on my new iphone 5 to iCloud today and I lost my audiobooks. Spend all day seeing where I went wrong. My audiobooks show up on my Windows computer with iTunes by I ca'nt get it to upload back to my iPhone. I get the word "ineligible" where its supposed to upload to icloud.

Any ideas out there???

Audiobooks are not allowed to be part of your iCloud.

They are too big to be useful and very few people are listening to them at the same time so the economy of scale fails.

Just sync them normally.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

Thanks for the reply. When you say "Sync normally" I would assume your saying disable icloud for a sync. Would that be disabling it on the ipone5 ----or on my PC?

I greatly appreciate your help. I missed my Audiobook last night

Thanks
Jay

Leave your iCloud on for your music.

Sync the audiobook with iTunes.

You can set your iTunes Match up on your phone. You set up what you sync in iTunes.
