I'm trying to copy and move an ABB file to another computer, but when I do so, ABB creates a folder full of several files. I'm not sure what to do with these several components once I move them to the new location/computer. Can someone help? Is there a way to keep the ABB file as just one single file and transfer it that way?

When you drag an audiobook from iTunes, it will treat each Chapter as a separate file. But, when you drag all of those files back in to the Book section in iTunes on another computer, they will again show up as one audiobook.

If you truly want a single audio file, you can rebuild your audiobook using Audiobook Builder. In the Finish section, click on the Build Options button. For the Part Style choose 'Equal Length' and then drag the Target Length slider all the way to the right. If your book is longer than the maximum Target Length allowed you will need to lower the quality to squeeze all the data in to one file. After you hit OK, the Finish section will show that your audiobook has only one Part. Build the Audiobook and you will be all set--a single file will be taken in to iTunes which can then be more easily copied to other computers. I hope this helps!

Also, if it is the Audiobook Builder project that you are copying over it will be treated as a bunch of files in a folder on a computer that doesn't have Audiobook Builder installed on it. It would definitely be easiest to copy over the finished audiobook rather than the project file, if that is the case.
