    Hi,
    I have an audiobook I'm trying to organize. Each track of the audiobook has an individual name, because each track covers a different topic.

    Unfortunately, when I sync the book to my ipad/ipod, and select the audiobook, rather than displaying the name of the track i.e "bonding" or "hybridization" it simply says "Part 1 of 14" "part 2 of 14" etc.

    I don't care what part it is, I want the actual name of the track displayed. To see what the track title is, I'm required to select the album artwork and then select the button than looks like this [=] (except with three lines) where it finally shows me the track titles.

    Is their anyway to display the track titles where the "part 1 of 14" is displayed?

    It definitely is possible as I've done it by mistake. I'm going to mess with settings to figure out how it was done. brb.

    Okay, I think I have it. Tried making the audiobook not a gapless album in the get info screen on your computer.
    If that didn't work, let me know and I'll try something else.
