If you run into problems, here’s a troubleshooting guide that may help.
Most of our audiobooks are now available in MP3 format and are Macintosh- and iPod-compatible, but a few titles are not yet available in this format. Look for an “MP3” symbol to be sure the title you want is available in this format.
WMA-format audiobooks from OverDrive are now compatible with Windows-formatted iPods, but 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.
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.
If you have e-reserves and have changed your e-mail address, you will need to update the e-mail address associated with each of your e-reserves to be sure you receive notification when the books become available. Please follow these steps:
