Response to: Problem with Audio Books
I, too, had this problem, and found a simple solution: Avoid Audible Format 4. For some reason (probably related to its new bookmark system), format 4 will jump around, even if you take steps like pausing and shutting off the Shuffle quickly. But format 3 has fewer issues. In fact, in iTunes, I often queue up the exact place I want to resume a format 3 audiobook, then I sync up. When I turn on the iPod and push play, I'm right where I wanted to be. Not always, but much more often than not, and in the very few instances of jump, I'm not as far ahead or behind as format 4 will put me. But where format 3 really comes in handy is in its shut off. Turn off the iPod Shuffle with format 3 and you'll start up where you left it. You can't beat that.
