If your MP3 player doesn't show up as a "Player" in the OverDrive Transfer Wizard, you can copy the audiobook from your Windows computer directly to your device.

Note:You won't be able to use these steps for Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod).

Use the steps below to manually transfer the audiobook to your device:

  1. Download the audiobook to OverDrive for Windows.
  2. Navigate to the audiobook files on your computer. By default, you'll find it under [My] Documents > My Media > MP3 Audiobooks.
  3. Plug your MP3 player into your computer.
  4. Drag the audiobook to your device and store it in the same place as other media (music or audiobooks). Your MP3 player will appear as a removable device in the left-hand side of the Windows Explorer (or File Explorer) window.
  5. Safely disconnect your MP3 player from your computer.

The audiobook should now play normally on your device.
