Eddie in Akron, Ohio listens to the podcast and asked: “I am looking for a program that will recognize tracks on a CD. I want to check out audiobooks on CD from the library, which I have. I put them into iTunes on the computer and iTunes does not recognize the proper tracks. I was wondering if there was a program that would help me with this.”
Eddie, that’s a tough one. Normally if any program can read a CD it should be able to navigate through the tracks.
It sounds like the real problem is that iTunes may be set to join the tracks once it realizes it’s an audiobook. That’s the preferred option of many people who don’t want to deal with maybe 50 or even more files each making up a chapter.
To see if that’s the case, you can select all of the tracks, click on the options menu and see if “Join CD tracks” is selected.
If that doesn’t work, just about any other software will do. Anything from old Window Media Player to FreeRip will probably be able to handle this job with no issues. You just want a ripper that will consider your book to be an audio CD and then it will split it into tracks.
