My wife and I get audiobooks periodically and some have a lot of cds. (Up to 20)

So I would like to be able to transfer them to my iphone from her computer and vice versa. It's a major PITA to download them on both computers.

So how do I do tis?
Cheers

Assuming you want to get them in the Music player, then the official way is to set your phone up to sync with her computer.

You might be able to use a third party app to do it, however. Since I don't take that path myself, I don't have an app to suggest.

If you are ripping the audiobooks from CDs, then the easiest way might be to copy the ripped files to a USB flash drive on her computer and then take the USB flash drive to your computer and copy them to your computer and import them to iTunes. Then you can just sync your phone with your computer. You could also do this by way of a network connection (i.e. shared folders).
