    In iTunes on the computer, right click on the mp3 file and choose Get Info. In the Options tab change the Media Kind to AudioBooks. It should move the file to the Books library in the left column. If you can't see Books under the Library section, turn it on in Preferences.

    Now sync your iPad again, and the file should show up in the Audiobook section of the Music app (or iPod app if pre iOS 5).

    Don't forget to click the Remember Position button, otherwise it'll start from the beginning every time.

    Have you loaded any audiobooks? The category won't show unless you actually have audiobooks loaded. If you do have at least one loaded, check you music app and tap on the More tab. Audiobooks and podcasts should show there.
