Confirm that your computer is authorized for the Apple ID you used to purchase these audiobooks (in iTunes>Store>Authorize this Computer). Also confirm that you are signed into the same Apple ID on your phone (in Settings>Store) and in iTunes on your computer. You should then be able to transfer the audiobooks using Transfer Purchases.

This was the authorized computer, but a couple months ago it froze and when I got it to reboot all of the files were gone and it started up like it was the first time I had used it. The Apple Store told me it was because of a funky error that they didn't know about. Would that have erased the authorization? Can I get it back?
**When i tried to authorize this computer it said it was already authorized.

Don't know if it would have removed the authorization but all you have to do to find out is open iTunes and go to Store>Authorize this Computer and enter your Apple ID and password. It will then tell you if it is already authorized.

Yes. It says it is already authorized. It looked one time as though it was going to copy over the audiobooks. I saw the names of them on the screen. But then it finished a few seconds later and hadn't copied them.

Did you look in your Purchased folder (on the left side of iTunes under Store)?

Yes. The audiobooks are the only thing that don't show up under purchases. However, they are on my phone, and if I expand the books section under my device in itunes the audiobooks show up amongs my ebooks, only greyed out.
