VanMagnus Systems :

Hi.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

hi

VanMagnus Systems :

So what type of Audio books are you trying to upload?

VanMagnus Systems :

Is it Audible or MP3 or MP4?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

i had gotten 3 free audiobooks from emusic, and no matter what i do it just adds to the musicfile instead of the book file

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

im not sure if they are mp3 or mp4

VanMagnus Systems :

OK.

VanMagnus Systems :

What are their file types.

VanMagnus Systems :

OK.

VanMagnus Systems :

Emusic.

VanMagnus Systems :

Hold on..

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

they say mp3 format sound

VanMagnus Systems :

OK. good to know.

VanMagnus Systems :

Do they populate in iTunes?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

when i add them to itunes they go into the music file with each chapter seperate

VanMagnus Systems :

Or have you tried to add them to iTunes?

VanMagnus Systems :

OK...

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

i have tried to add them to itunes, but the only place they will go is into the music file. it will not let me move them into the books

VanMagnus Systems :

So you need to create a folder or choose to sync those files to you iPod Touch.

VanMagnus Systems :

OK.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

i have tried to create a folder with them in and it still goes to the music file when i sync it

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

what kind of folder do i need to create to have the books go into the book section

VanMagnus Systems :

OK.

VanMagnus Systems :

Hold on looking at that now...

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

i will be right back

VanMagnus Systems :

OK.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok. sorry about that im a diabetic and i was starting to have a low blood sugar

VanMagnus Systems :

OK..

VanMagnus Systems :

Oh, I would LOVE to have those. I am Diabetic also.

VanMagnus Systems :

Since 1995

VanMagnus Systems :

Mine is lower now though.

VanMagnus Systems :

Now to the issue.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

i have been since about 2003. just started on insulin this year and with the pills it really brings me down to much

VanMagnus Systems :

You cannot select the files and copy them to the folders.

VanMagnus Systems :

Oh boy, bottoming out is not good.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

to which folders

VanMagnus Systems :

OK.

VanMagnus Systems :

Hold on a moment....

VanMagnus Systems :

From the main menu under File select Add File To Library to add one, or maybe a few MP3s or select Add Folder To Library to add all the MP3s in a folder.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

it added it to the music file

VanMagnus Systems :

OK. Did you Sync it to the iPod Touch yet?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok doing that now

VanMagnus Systems :

OK.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok sync is done now what

VanMagnus Systems :

Check the device.

VanMagnus Systems :

Is the Audio there Sir or Ma'am?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok what audio is on the device, but it is still in the music files

VanMagnus Systems :

OK. Now, since the files were purchased as MP3's. They will remain MP3's unless you convert them to another format.

VanMagnus Systems :

Is that what you wish to do?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok. how do i do that

VanMagnus Systems :

Do you want to convert them and to what format?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

im not sure. what format would be best to convert them to

VanMagnus Systems :

MP4?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

is that the standard for books

VanMagnus Systems :

Well, there is not a real need to convert them at all.

VanMagnus Systems :

They are in that format for your convience.

VanMagnus Systems :

Converting them would add more work for you?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

but if i keep them in mp3 then when i shuffle songs i run the risk of going thru the book tracks

VanMagnus Systems :

But if you waa=nt to convert them to another format you can use:

VanMagnus Systems :

To AAC then

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

how hard is the conversion on whatever format i use then

VanMagnus Systems :

AAC.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok. lets try it then

VanMagnus Systems :

This is the fastest way using iTunes to do it.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok

VanMagnus Systems :

You can choose several options, you just select the one that is best for you.

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

okwill there be a way to tell which one is the converted one

VanMagnus Systems :

Yes, the file will appear with the same name but with a new extension

VanMagnus Systems :

Cool, is it not?

JACUSTOMER-6xyk2rht- :

ok. will i be able to move the new file. it is very cool.

VanMagnus Systems :

Well, you are able to get great Audio quality from these conversion.
