Hate ripping titles using iTunes? A free download from Apple can help those with Apple computers: Audiobook Builder. Here’s more from the Apple website:
How do you move Audiobooks to your iPod or iPhone? Do you rip to iTunes, then move every imported track to a special playlist before syncing? That means hundreds of confusing track names cluttering iTunes and your iPod or iPhone, with no way to save your place in a track when you take a break, and working with iTunes’ Import settings just gets old.
Now there’s Audiobook Builder, the easy way to import your Audiobook CDs (or tracks that are already on your Mac), organize them, add enhanced chapter markers and output files that your iPod or iPhone will recognize as actual Audiobooks. The results are automatically sent to a special playlist in iTunes – ready for your next iPod or iPhone sync.
