audiobooks drm remover Q: How can I keep chapter points during the conversion of DRM audiobooks?

"I want to put my audiobooks purchased from iTunes to my car stereo for listening. But due to the DRM lock of those iTunes audiobooks, I had to remove the DRM copy protection at first with some DRM audiobook converter tools. However, there were no chapter breaks when I played the converted audiobook files in my car. It's 36 hours long and I really don't want to listen to the whole book without being able to move ahead chapter by chapter. So it would be great if you could recommend a converter for DRM audiobooks capable of saving chapters during conversion."
