OverDrive has released the latest update of OverDrive Media Console for Windows, which enables library users to transfer OverDrive WMA Music to iPod and iPhone. Albums from blues label Alligator Records will be the first music downloads that can be transferred to Apple devices, and we expect more publishers to allow iPod transfer in the future.
As part of the update, we’ve optimized the music transfer experience for iPod owners. When OverDrive WMA Music is transferred to an Apple device, it will be categorized as ‘Music,’ and we will enable ‘Remember playback position’ and ‘Skip when shuffling’.
To download OverDrive Media Console v.188.8.131.52 with OverDrive WMA Music to iPod transfers, click here.
Right now, we are refreshing the existing Help pages on your download website, and on overdrive.com, to support OverDrive Media Console v184.108.40.206 for Windows. We will also update the Title Details page for OverDrive WMA Music titles that can be transferred to Apple devices. The ‘iPod’ icon in the ‘Plays on’ section of the screen will be enabled where this support exists.
OverDrive is handling all aspects of this release, so you can kick back and relax. We’ll take care of everything.
