General Errors

Apple iOS 5 will not transfer WMA eAudio to the Apple devices.

To all Apple users.  Please be advised that something must have changed in the way iTunes works with  iOS 5.  After updating to the iOS 5 for Apple products, you will no longer be able to transfer WMA formatted titles to your device from the Overdrive Media Console.

Normally the Overdrive Media Console uses iTunes to convert the file into something it can use.  Something more than likely changed in the iOS 5 update and now the Overdrive Media Console can no longer use iTunes to convert the files.  Our developers are working on the issue and their response about the issue is below.

MP3 formatted titles should still work as normal.  We will update you here as soon as we know this is fixed.


A Note for Google Chrome Users of the Digital Catalog.

Some of our customers who use Google Chrome as their main browser may be seeing a message on our digital site that says that the site is down for maintenance.

If this file is not opened within OverDrive Media Console within a few hours, it will become invalid. Please check the following and try downloading this audiobook again from your online account.

1. Check that the system time, date, and time zone are correct on your PC. Because of the time sensitive nature of the download, if the time is off by even a few hours, this could cause the error reported.

2. Clear your browser's Temporary Internet Files or cache. This will clear out the previous download attempt.
