How to recategorize audiobooks on an iPod
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.
- Connect your iPod to your computer using a USB cable.
- Open iTunes (if it doesn't open automatically).
Select the Device button near the top-left corner of iTunes.
- Under "On My Device," click Music.
Right-click (or control-click on a Mac) an audiobook file, then click Get Info.
- In the pop-up window, click the Options tab.
- In the "media kind" drop-down menu, select Audiobook.
- Click OK.
You'll now find the audiobook file(s) under "Audiobooks" on your iPod.
