I want to take a folder full of mp3's, and merge it into an audiobook-file (for Ipod, don't remember the file format) with chapters for each file.

Is there a tool that will do this?

Here's how I've done it in my Mac ...

Placed all my *.mp3 files to a folder, and open Terminal to that folder .. making sure my mp3 files are in correct sequence audio1.mp3 audio2.mp3 and so on ...

cat *.mp3 > Bookname.mp3

Then I went to Itune and added that big MP3 file to my Library (Add to Library :))

When the Bookname.mp3 shows up under my Music, I right click on it, Get Info, Option and change the Music type to "AudioBook" type ...

That's it ..

This does not create chapters. –  Mark Richman Jun 20 '11 at 0:11

Audiobook Maker is free and open source for Mac.

I recommended Audiobook Builder for this question, and I'll do it again here. It costs 10USD, but is definitely worth it if you'll be creating more than a few audiobooks.
