iPod Users Can Now Enjoy Additional Downloadable Books

We're excited to announce that iPod users can now transfer many of our downloadable book titles in wma format to their iPods, if they are using a PC for download and transfer. The icons for these titles now include the icon for "iPod," as well as "PC" and "WMA."

Users will need to download the new Overdrive Media Console (v. 3.2) in order to take advantage of the feature. Their iTunes software must be set to manually sync (the Media Console will alert them to that before it downloads), and the transfer process will take longer than patrons have been accustomed to because the console is doing some conversion "on the fly."

This is only available for PCs but Mac users will continue to be able to download mp3 titles, and the consortium will continue to purchase mp3 titles for the downloadable book service.

We're pleased that more patrons will have access to the wma titles in WILBOR, our downloadable audiobook collection. Please let us know if you have questions.  (--message provided courtesy of the WILBOR team)
