If you have an iPod touch, please follow the instructions in Getting started with an iOS device (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch). For all other models, the guide below will help you get started.
What you need
How it works
- Install software
Install OverDrive Media Console (OMC) on your computer to transfer MP3 or WMA audio files to your device.
Note: Not all WMA audio titles are available to transfer to an iPod due to publisher agreements. A Windows computer is required to transfer WMA titles.
- Borrow titles using your computer
First, open your library's digital collection website (find it here).
Next, borrow an audio title using your computer.
- Transfer titles to your iPod and enjoy
Windows users can transfer MP3 and compatible WMA audiobooks to an iPod. Mac users can transfer MP3 audiobooks.
Once you have transferred a title onto your iPod, you can listen to it just like you would any audio file on the device. WMA titles will be listed with your playlists, and MP3 titles can be found under "Music."
