Transferring Audiobooks

Once the audiobook has been downloaded to your PC or Mac, it can be transferred to your compatible player.

Here are some tips:
  • Open OMC and connect player.
  • iPod users will need to have a current version of iTunes installed and running on their computer. Ideally, this is the same computer typically used to transferring music and apps to the same iPod. 
  • iPod users must make two changes within iTunes: 
    • With the iPod connected >> Visit iTunes >> Click on iPod's name in left sidebar >> in the center part of the screen, under the iPod's description, view "Manually Manage Music and Video." >> Select this option >> Apply.
    • From iTunes >> (Edit) >> Preferences >> Options >> Import Settings button >> Change to "Spoken Podcast. >> Save.
  • If another player besides iPods is used on a PC, no additional software besides the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) is required to run.
  • From OMC >> Select desired title (it should be blue) >> Click "Transfer" button. 
  • Allow the title to transfer. 
  • WMA titles transferring to an iPod will take 3 minutes or so per part to transfer. iTunes is working in the background. 
  • Disconnect the player when finished transferring.
