iTunes Syncing 101

by Michael Alderete on 5/27/2009 · 5 comments

Researching the answer to a reader question, I came across the following article in Apple’s Knowledgebase, and it’s so generally useful, I thought I mention it:

Syncing Music to iPod

It covers the most basic information about how to sync audio from iTunes to your iPod or iPhone, but that’s often the best place to start when you have sync problems. For more advanced syncing settings specific to audiobooks, see my article Managing audiobooks on a small-capacity iPod.

Improved Audiobook Builder

Audiobook BuilderJust a quick note to mention that Audiobook Builder, my preferred solution for creating audiobooks on Mac OS X, was recently updated to version 1.1. The improvements include:

  • Longer audiobook parts, 18 hours instead of the prior 12 hour limit.
  • New options for where to break an audiobook into parts; for me, this means no more chapters split across separate parts.
  • A number of new build options that allow you to change the settings right before you build the audiobook.

There’s other changes and fixes. A nice (free) update to an already very good audiobook tool.
