Hi, I have been using ABB for some years and storing the books in iTunes on my iMac and listening to them on a 2007 iPod Classic.

Having recently updated to macOS Catalina 10.15.1 the audiobook is now stored in Books. So far so good. However it is now impossible to rewind on my iPod to the start of each Disc. When I press rewind it jumps to the start of the book and when forward is pressed it jumps to the start of the next book!

This is useless, as I regularly fall asleep listening to an audiobook when I go to bed in the evening, and when I wake in the morning I need to rewind disk by disk to find out where I had fallen asleep!

Thanks for letting us know about this. We just heard from another user with the same issue with their iPod Classic, and we've now duplicated it here on our 4th-generation tester. We're still testing, but it seems Catalina is stripping chapters during the sync to non-iOS iPods. The original files still have chapters - we synced the exact same files from Mojave to the same iPod and chapters showed up - so it's something about the sync process on Catalina. We'll let you know more as we learn it!

As this issue is such a pain, and doesn't look like it is likely to be resolved anytime soon, I am contemplating buying the latest iPod. Will this resolve the issue? I would like to know before investing in a new one.

If you're looking at a new iPod touch, that'd be a device you could use to access Chapters again. Chapters should appear just fine on any iPod touch running the latest version of iOS, which is 13.2.3 right now.
