    Help.....I'm new to this iPad "thingy".....a.k.a......wet behind the ears!! I have purchased and downloaded two audiobooks. One from my home computer (which I can find only on my home computer - not my iPad) and the other from my iPad (which I can't find on either). How on earth do I find these!?! I have went to my "music" section and I don't see a "more" option. H E L P !! :)

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I dont have any audiobooks so cant be of much help....but where have you downloaded them from? Also have a look in your podcasts as sometimes they can be downloaded here. There is an app for audio books called Audible which I've heard is good.
    Have a look at this link also

    If you purchased the audio books from iTunes, they won't appear in any purchased list. The only way I've found to do it is to sync with iTunes on my computer and transfer the audio book to my computer. If I want to download it to another device, all I have to do is sync that device with iTunes on my computer and transfer the audio book to it. This may change with iOS 6, we'll have to wait and see.

    If you tap the music app icon the screen will open to a page similar to this. The more section is in the bottom right corner.
