I'm trying to get audiobooks in mp3 format to appear in the Audiobooks section of my Zune. I found that it needs to be converted to a WAX file to do that.

Importing audio books in MP3 and WMA format into your Zune device is not possible. You will need to use their main application, Overdrive, and manually create a WAX file which contains data (cover, path to track) about the track you are importing.
The wax file should look like this:

<asx version="3.0">
<ref href="\\path\to\file\file.wma"/>

Put the path to your WMA file and place it in the same directory where the wma/mp3 is and then drag the wax file over the TransferWizard.exe application (from the Overdrive installation folder) and you will see you file synced with your Zune.
