Downloadable Audiobooks and iPods
WMA-format audiobooks from OverDrive are now compatible with Windows-formatted iPods, but some are not compatible with Macintosh computers.
If you have a Windows-formatted iPod, please look over this information first. Also, please be aware that transferring these audiobooks to an iPod will probably be slow because of the conversion process required by the iPod.
Macintosh-compatible MP3 audiobooks are also available, but some titles are not available in this format. Look for an "MP3" symbol to identify these audiobooks.
If you have an iPod Touch, please see these instructions for iOS (Apple) Mobile Devices. For information about other portable devices, please check this information about compatibility with OverDrive.
