If you're using Safari to download titles, you may need to manually open the ODM and ACSM file for each title you borrow and download.

In newer versions of Safari, you should have the option when you click the download link to "Open with" either Adobe Digital Editions or OverDrive for Mac.

Note: Using Firefox or Chrome will also give you the option of automatically opening these files.

Open files from the default download location

Follow the steps below to locate and open ODM files (in OverDrive's desktop app) or ACSM files (in Adobe Digital Editions).

  1. Open Finder.
  2. Click Downloads.
  3. Double-click the ODM or ACSM file. It should then open using the appropriate program.

Note: After you download a title from your library, be sure to go right to the "Downloads" folder to open the file. It will only remain available for a limited amount of time.
