    I imported a CD into my iTunes library (Mac Mountain Lion OS). The CD is excerpts and meditation exercises from a book I am reading. Just wondering if there is a way to have the CD show up as a BOOK type rather than MUSIC?

    Thanks for any help.

    Right-click on the item, then "Get Info", Options > Media Kind

    Grayed Out

    "Media Kind" is grayed out, and won't let me select anything.

    What exact version of iTunes are you running? And are you using iTunes Match?

    This was a bug in iTunes 11 that was supposedly fixed in iTunes 11.01. iTunes is up to 11.02 now. Try running software update to make sure you have the latest version of iTunes and see if that fixes it.

    Not fixed. I have _one_ single file with spoken text where I can't change "media kind" to Audiobook. Quite annoying.

    Just a question: I have a few CDs with a few spoken tracks, like interviews with the artist etc. How does everybody handle that?

    You might try creating an AAC version and changing the media kind on that. You may have to exclude it from iTunes Match. If that works, just delete the original copy.

    It it's part of an album, I leave the media kind as music.
