Never had this problem before. It has always worked fine. Purchase an audiobook on my computer's iTunes. Transfer audiobook to my iPhone, and it plays fine. However, my latest attempt did not work. I followed the steps I always do. The book shows on my phone, but when I play it, it automatically pauses itself. It will not play. I have searched the forums and none of the answers solve the problem. I deleted all audiobooks and music from my phone and re-synced with iTunes, no affect. Music plays, but not the audiobook. In one forum it said go to the purchases section of my phones iTunes and hit the cloud icon on the audiobooks section. THERE IS NO AUDIOBOOK section of the purchases. Which also doesn't make sense since when I search for the audiobook on the iTunes store on my phone, it can find it, and it recognizes that I've already purchased it, but still wont directly download to my phone, it only asks if I'd like to purchase it again.
