    Reinstalling iTunes generally does not fix this kind of behavior. The reason it doesn't is that the problem is most likely not with iTunes itself but with the library files.

    Can you describe the problem a bit better. When you say that music and audiobooks have to be toggled do you mean that the audiobooks first appear in music and then you have to edit the file info to reflect that it is an audiobook? similar probllems often appear with video all appearing as "home video until the information is corrected. I don' trcall a permanent fix for this but I'll do a bit of digging.

    thanks,
    audiobook download>itunes>music (automatically)>edit>audiobook has been the only procedure i know.
    opening music there are several cover art blanks, not the music, just the cover art and switching to audiobooks the same situation...switching back to music all art is loaded and again back to audiobooks all art is loaded as well. however editing audiobooks from music gets several identical copies in audiobooks and when one is deleted all delete. makes no difference if i open itunes in audiobooks or music same toggle issue........ i hope this clear thanks for the help
