Default Books In MP3 Format

I have books that are in MP3 format. Each chapter is broken into like 4 MP3 (192kbps, 2 ch, 44kHz) format. I tried putting them in the Music folder, Audible folder, changed the tags, etc but still my player can't see the files. This makes no sense to me since they are the same format as my music files. Just because the MP3 has no beats to it shouldn't matter if the files are displayed or not.

Suggestions?

I am currently using Media Monkey.

Also, how do I get my Pilot to grab the latest subscribed podcasts when I connect to Media Monkey. Must I do this manually?

I am going to try to use "MP3 to iPod Auido Book Converter" software to get the MP3 files to the .m4b format. Then I will put them in the Audible folder. Fingers crossed

I am guessing that they cannot really mp3 format since my podcasts are in mp3 format and show up fine. Download mediainfo from mediainfo.sourceforge.net to see if they really are in mp3 format file.

As I mentioned in a different thread, I have placed audiobooks (MP3 format) in two different places, and was able to play them. rgvmp3's response may be correct -- are you absolutely sure your audiobooks are in MP3 format?

The Pilot is quite handy for audiobooks ... very long battery life, and a good "resume" feature (even resumes in mid-track) if the player is turned OFF. Play then continues through the remainder of the tracks.

Resume is somewhat lacking when resuming from a bookmark, since only the bookmarked track will play.
