Do they have the right extension? The audiobooks need an extension of .m4b to be recognized by iTunes.

iPad is not syncing my Audiobooks

I relisten to several audiobooks bought from iTunes on my iPod and iPhone, but it is not working from my iPad. If someone knows what I am doing wrong please let me know.

Apple please fix soon if it is not my fault.

Found the Answer

We have to go to the new Books tab on the iTunes iPad sync page and scroll to the bottom and select Audio Book. The music tab is just the the Playlists????

I hope this helps!

Any books with a .aa(Audible) or .M4B(iTunes, Audiobook Builder) extension must be managed through the books tab now. Even if you have playlist set up under your music tab and select the playlist to sync it won't sync unless the same playlist is selected under the books tab. Quite lame! It caused me a lot of headaches. When Apple changes something like this, they should have a little pop up come up when you try to sync an audiobook stating this change.

I would like to have the last few hours of my life back. If Jobs is really God, then that shouldn't be a problem.
