    Hey everyone, I had a question about iTunes and how it displays audiobooks. After following a very good tutorial, I managed to rip some audio-book CD's from my local library, and have gotten them to show up on my iPod in the "Audiobooks" category and everything just fine. However, I have just discovered the capabilities of the "Search Bar" and what a great wonder it is! Before I had to search for my videos while cursing at iTunes, but now I can sort everything by "All", "Music", "Audiobooks", "Videos"...etc. Thats just it though, for some reason, my Audiobooks arent showing up in the "Audiobook" category in iTunes, does anyone know how I can fix this? They show up as Audiobooks on my iPod, but not in iTunes?!?!

    EDIT: Okay, they show up as audiobooks when I am in my "Library" in iTunes, but not when I use the search bar in my iPod, they dont show up, even though they are on my ipod.

    Now you see them...

    Now you don't!!!

    My audio books show up under Music/Genre/Audiobooks. Make sure you have all your tags right. Sometimes when you rip a cd, it automatically says Books and Spoken Word or something else rather than Audiobook. Also, sometimes the box "Part of a Complilation" is checked and that can mess up the way iTunes sorts the files. Good luck.
