Audible bookmarks

Has anyone else had a problem with "drifting" bookmarks when listening to Audible content? If I pause a book and then turn it right back on, it picks up at the place I stopped it. But if I pause a book and let the Shuffle sit for a more lengthy period of time (say, an hour or more), the book will pick up about 3-5 minutes ahead of where I stopped it. What a pain . . .

Also, it sure would be great if the iPods supported chapter bookmarks.

I believe I too am experiencing a similiar problem as yours. Unfortunately, I do not have an answer.

I often use my shuffle for audio podcasts. The ones I listen to are broken down into segments ~15 minutes in length. Often at the end of Podcast A, Podcast B begins not at the start but a few minutes into the Podcast. In addition, as I try to find the start of Podcast B, I have also experienced where the Next/Prev functions don't bring me to the start of the next/previous podcast.

I have experimented with iTunes to see if I can reproduce the "error". I have found that if I play a podcast for a few minutes or advance it to a spot in the middle and then do a Next/Prev to land back at this podcast, I am returned to the point I left off and not the beginning. I do not know how to reset the pointer other than to drag the indicator back to the beginning.

At this point, I am wondering if this behavior is what I hear on the Shuffle.

I would very interested in hearing from others who are experiencing similiar situations.
