Some important notes regarding the OverDrive Media Console upgrade next Wednesday 29th May

So many of our members are enjoying OverDrive ebooks on their mobile devices and it's great to see! We wanted to pass on this announcement from OverDrive regarding the next Media Console upgrade with plenty of notice.

OverDrive are releasing an updated version of the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) mobile app for iOS and Android (v2.6.5) on Wednesday 29th May (Australia time).

Important change for OverDrive Media Console for iOS v2.6.5 (iPhone, iPad etc)

As a result of changes to Apple's privacy policies, OverDrive have had to make changes to the way they handle licensing for EPUB ebooks & MP3 audiobooks. Therefore the upgrade will de-authorise every user's Adobe ID.

After upgrading to OverDrive Media Console v2.6.5 on these devices members will be prompted to authorise the devices with their Adobe ID again. The ID is your email address and hopefully you've remembered the password. To continue reading the ebooks you've previously downloaded you'll need to sign in with the same AdobeID used previously.

Audiobook users

Audiobook borrowers that have partially downloaded an audiobook prior to the upgrade will need to return to the library bookshelf to download any missing parts.

If users try downloading missing parts directly without first reactivating the download from their library website bookshelf, they will receive a ‘downloadManagerErrorDomain:403’ error.

For more information on the upgrade visit the OverDrive blog.

Cheers, webgurl
