By default, audiobooks are stored under "Music" on your iPod and in iTunes. If you prefer, you can categorize an audiobook to show up under "Audiobooks" instead using the steps below.

  1. Connect your iPod to your computer using a USB cable.
  2. Open iTunes (if it doesn't open automatically).
  3. Select the Device button near the top-left corner of iTunes.
