iPod Audio Book Maker – easily convert MP3 files to audio books


This MP3 to iPod Audio Book Converter freeware takes ordinary MP3 files and turns them into either a single large iPod audio book file or separate files. By doing this you can take advantage of the iPod’s bookmarking functionality and resume where you left off listening, and you can also adjust the reading speed. Both of which are pretty cool. I suspect it will also be very useful for anyone who wants to combine a set of podcasts – like a lecture series – into a single bookmarkable file for listening over time.

  MP3 to iPod Audio Book Converter converts any number of MP3 files into one big iPod Audio Book File. The advantage of doing this is that you can make use of the advanced audio book functionality of your iPod. Your iPod remembers the last position you was listening in your audio book. So you can alway start listening where you stopped the last time. Even if you were listening to music or another audio book in the meantime…This feature gets really valuable for audio books consiting of many small files. With this software you can combine all this files to a single file and you don’t have to worry anymore on which file you stopped listening the last time.


  • The new iTunes version lets you convert single files within the app now. Right click on the MP3, select Get Info, Click the Options tab, then change the Media Kind value to Audiobook.

  • Creative’s Zen players have always had a bookmarking feature. I didn’t know the iPod did. However, the ZEN supports eBooks via the Windows Media Format, while the iPod doesn’t. If you go to, you’ll see on the homepage an icon for ebooks, but it the Zen Vision:M, not the iPod because iPod doesn’t support.

    The ZEN is a better player, so get one instead of the iPod. Creative invented the iPod interface, which Apple stole.

  • @Tom – ah..that’s interesting news. Thanks for that.
    @Davin – heh, yeah the Creative definitely has a solid product line up. But Apple’s got iTunes, eh? :-)

  • this is a great piece of info, just saved me downloading a heap of software trying to do this simple function …
