Wife going on a trip up to Oregon.

Want to install 3 audio books on her iPhone.

They are in mp3 format.

How do I get them in the Book area of her phone?

Can you open in Quicktime and export as audio, then change the extension from .m4a to .m4b?

I just did that with an mp3 using Quicktime Player 10.

When I double-click the file, it opens in the Books section of iTunes 11.

Once it's in iTunes, you should just be able to sync the iPhone with your computer. After syncing, if you can't find the audio file, try syncing a second time, and make sure iTunes is setup to sync Audio Books - it's one of the sync tabs in iTunes.

If I recall, I had to tell iT to sync Audio Books. It wasn't a default.

Right clicking the files in iTunes and changing the type to Audio book doesn't work? Remember to set proper sync options of course.
