Post subject:  No AudioBooks on AppleWatch

Hello,
Since WatchOS6 Audiobooks can be hear on AppleWatch, but only the Books buyed in the AppleBookStore. What is the difference to the books created bx AudioBookBuilder? What can I do to hear this books on my Watch?
Many Thanks, Unclebenz

Audiobooks created with Audiobook Builder aren't really all that different from those sold by Apple. But, in the past, we have seen where certain Apple products have issues with artwork files saved in certain formats. So, for a test, perhaps it'd be a good idea to try creating a file with Audiobook Builder that has no Cover art or Chapter artwork included, then see if that plays.

Hello Allan W., thanks for your response.I´ve tested a audiobook without cover but it´s the same: In the Apple Watch App on my iPhone are only audiobooks that i´ve bought by Apple. The difference i see is Apple´s Fairplay Version 2, thats not on my own created audiobooks. Is there a way to create books with drm ?
Best regards Unclebenz

Audiobook Builder isn't capable of adding DRM protection to its build, but it's unlikely that the protection is involved anyway. We'll do some additional research and testing to see if we can find an explanation.

Hi Allan, any further update on this? I've been pursuing AppleCare on this exact same issue - the only content I'd really like to copy to my watch is in audiobook format.. It'd be great if this worked. Thank you

No updates yet, unfortunately. We still need to do some additional testing on an Apple Watch to isolate the cause of the issue.
