Have you ever bought any audiobook from the iTunes store? iTunes sells audiobooks in a different way from Audible. You don't have to pay the monthly fee to subscribe to the membership and you can buy the whatever audiobook you want at the fair price when there is a discount. To be honest, this pay-as-you-go pricing is more suitable for those who don't have much time for listening audiobooks but wants certain audiobooks.

Now the question is, what device should you listen to your iTunes audiobooks? You may answer "iPhone, of course". However, I am sure many people prefer to use an iPod for playback just like me. The best part about listening to the audiobook on iPod is that you won't be interrupted or disturbed when emerging in the story. You can get too many distractions if you use your iPhone. Well, if you are not going to abandon your old iPod and really want to give it a role to play, you can follow the guide below to play iTunes Audiobook on your iPod.

How to Listen to iTunes Audiobooks on iPod

Before you put the downloaded iTunes audiobooks, there are 2 reasons you need to know why you can't directly play them on iPod. First of all, iTunes audiobooks are in M4B format, a format some iPod may not support. Second, unlike iTunes songs you bought, iTunes audiobooks are protected by DRM. So, to make them playable on your iPod, you need to use ViWizard DRM Audio Converter. It is a 3-in-1 DRM audio converter that can convert iTunes audiobooks, Audible audiobooks, and Apple Music songs to non-DRM formats such as MP3, FLC, WMA, WAV and so on.
