Why do some CD's tracks only play independently ("1 of 1")?

All of my non-music CDs load tracks to iPod via iTunes as individual units ("1 of 1" instead of, for ex., "2 of 16"); any way to get around this? This happens with CDs of Garrison Keillor (humor) and Tony Hillerman (books on CD). The track names appear under the album name on the iPod (under Genres and Albums categories), but when each track plays, it just starts over rather than going to the next track on the recording. These are all original, professional recordings. (This problem also happens with "spoken word" recordings I put on my PC via Adobe Audition that had tracks created with a DAK WAVE EDITOR PRO program and were then transferred to iTunes>iPod.) All my music CDs that were loaded onto iTunes>iPod seem to work fine on the iPod in terms of going from one track to the next. And when I play Garrison Keillor & Tony Hillerman on iTunes, it does play from one track to the next - the problem is only on the iPod. I have a 160GB Classic that is only a few months old. Any helpful information would be appreciated. Thank you.

iPod classic, Windows Vista, 160GB Classic

    Is Shuffle set to anything other than Off via Main Menu -> Settings -> Shuffle?
