    Audio book format
    Quick question about the audio book format.

    I have a ton of books that were ripped from CD’s into MP3 files.

    The ones I have converted over to the M4B format work, but have a “cracking sound” that they did not have in regular mp3 format playing on the same iPhone.

    Is this because I ripped all the mp3’s at a really low bit rate and the M4B format would prefer a higher rate?

    Also, is there a program that will let me combine the dozen tracks of the converted mp3 into one or two audio book track like they are when you d/l an audio book?

    THANKS A MILLION in advance!!!!

    Audiobook Builder is the app for you. Worth every penny.

    If you want free - you can give this post a read. Go on down to the 3rd post on how to combine your individual mp3s. The first issue I addressed there is not really an issue in iTunes any longer.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Associated question
    I am still using a PC - so the software will not work and the docs are for a MAC also (no apps folder).

    I will be getting a 27" iMac in a few months, but can I do this now, do I have to wait.

    I.E.; is there a way for me to do this with a PC?

    Am sure there are, but I do this on my Mac.

    You'd probably be able to find something with google as fast as I could - or join a Windows based forum.

    Ya, that is what I have been doing. Not looking good without re-ripping and doing it then.
