    I have an audiobook in a CD. I copied it to my itunes library.

    The "new order" of the audiobook in the itunes library is
    alphapetic and it doesn´t follow the order in the CD or the
    order of the novel/story.

    What can I do, so when I go to itunes OR when i use my
    ipod, the original order is not altered (into an alphabetical
    order) ??

    Thank you,

    First, make sure that all the parts of your audiobook have the same "Artist" and "Album" (select all parts, then "Get Info". If Artist and Album are filled out, then they are the same. If they are not filled out, then they are not the same, so type in the correct Album and Artist). When that is done, do "Get Info" for the individual parts; for each part, fill in "Track xxx" and "of yyy tracks". When you sort your whole library by album, then the album parts will be sorted by track number.

    Audiobook Tracks re-order in iPod

    I have a book on CD in my iTunes library. It is one of those books that has 99 minute-long tracks. They are named Track 1 - Track 99. There are 10 CD's. Each track is noteded with Disc 1 of 10, etc. They all have the same Author, generes, artist, etc.

    In iTunes, they list and play properly. In my iPod, it rearranges them so I have:
    Track 1
    Track 1
    Track 1
    Track 1
    Track 1
    Track 2
    Track 2
    Track 2
    Track 2

    In iTunes, the iPod has the tracks listed in the correct order. It just messes up when I go to play in the iPod. What am I missing here?

    each track one is the the first track on each disc.
    arrange the disc numbers in the correct order in itunes and change the track names and number [eg track 1 on disc 2 is really track 3]
