OverDrive Audiobook Software Adds iPod Compatibility

May 29, 2009

OverDrive, a provider of infrastructure for distributing digital content, announced that digital audiobook catalogs from publishers will be compatible with iPod and other Apple devices after an upgrade of OverDrive’s free audiobook software. New and existing users with Windows PCs will be able to install OverDrive Media Console version 3.2 for iPod, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPod nano, as well as Zune and other portable devices. OverDrive Media Console’s Transfer Wizard will expand the selection of iPod-compatible audiobook titles for libraries by making the majority of existing audiobook titles on library download websites playable on Apple devices. Once OverDrive Media Console version 3.2 is installed, most titles in a library’s OverDrive WMA audiobook collection will instantly become iPod-compatible for users with Windows PCs.
