When I read the backup help page at <http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302392>, I saw this notice:

Spoken programs purchased from the Audible.com website are not backed up.

If that's the case, then how do you know which files qualify for this exception (so you can back them up separately)? Is there any special considerations for backing-up Audible.com files? After restoring your iTunes library from a backup CD/DVD, how do you re-integrate any Audible.com backup data into the library?

(I have some audio-book entries, but I don't know if they count under this exception. For all I know, the Audible.com entries could have a back-up solution already provided. Finally, why is there this exception? Is it legal or technical?)

eMac (August 2002), Mac OS X (10.4.10), APC Back-UPS CS 350; 2Wire DSL-Modem/Wireless-Router; Canon Pixma MP500; Seagate 200GB Pushbutton Backup External Hard Drive; LaCie DVD+-RW DL

    I do not use the backup to disc function in iTunes. I simply create a smart playlist for backup purposes with the rule, "date added is after". The last set of backup discs I burned was on 7/20, so my playlist is set for everything added after 7/20. I have it set for about 300 items which will just about fill up a data DVD. My audible content backups to the data discs just fine because I checked the last ones I burned on 7/20, & the 2 books play fine. Hope this helps.
