OverDrive released OverDrive Media Console v3.1 on September 18. It has a new ‘look & feel’ with new buttons and a new splash screen. Zune users can now use Transfer Wizard to transfer OverDrive MP3 and WMA Audiobooks to their Zunes. Patrons with OMC v3.1 will be ready to download and enjoy OverDrive MP3 Audiobook titles and listen to them on a wide range of devices, including the Apple(r) iPod(r) Classic, iPod Mini, iPod Touch, and the iPhone(tm). As an additional resource, the Help pages at our patron site have been refreshed with details about OMC v3.1. Please note that it works in iPods formatted with a Windows based computer. Mac iPods will not be available until early next year.
Also, patrons who like ebooks should now use the Abode Digital Editions reader. This will allow them to return their ebooks before they expire (are due).
