What defines an audio book? I have one sitting in Music on the iPod and I'd rather have it in AudioBooks. Doesn't seem to be the genre so I assume there must be something else that defines it. Anyone know?

http://www.dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/scripts07.php?page=1#makebookmarkable will do the required work to make an AAC book into an audio book, don't think anything works with MP3s.

Alternatively, just prune it out using smart playlists... All of my music smart playlists include "Genre" does not contain "Book".

Thanks, smart folders works.

Tried the script but it only converted one track.

Glad you found a solution.

I do mine by hand one at a time with a hex editor. ;)
