    to RJ without Windoze:

    Just partition your drive and stick Windoze in there. I’ve got a machine setup exactly like that Linux/Windows.

    have signed up with sync summer program. downloaded overdrive. downloaded the two titles onto my windows 8 laptop. trying to load the book in my overdrive, however, doesn’t seem to be working. after 30 min, still loading and 0% has downloaded. what am i doing wrong?

      Try fully closing the app and restarting the downloads. If you are still having trouble please email us at synchelp@audiofilemagazine.com so we can get full details.

    Michelle – sometimes we’re traveling when the downloads are announced. I know we can download the books on our mobile devices, but can we subsequently transfer them back to our desktop computers, so they then can be transferred to an iPod classic for car listening? We just hate to miss a week of this wonderful gift over the summer. If it’s possible, any details on procedures would be appreciated

      If you login to your OverDrive account on both your mobile device and your computer you should be able to access them from your computer and do the transfer from there when you return home. Enjoy and have fun listening as you travel!

    If I downloaded Overdrive on my Nook HDplus last year, can I assume I am ready to go for this year?

    1. Michele Cobb

      Yes. Titles are up and ready for download now so give it a try.

    I downloaded the OverDrive Media app onto my MacBook last summer and downloaded all of the Sync titles. I am now trying to transfer them to my iPhone but am unsuccessful. I have the OverDrive app on my iPhone and have used the transfer icon on my OverDrive on my MacBook, but the titles aren’t showing up in my bookshelf on my phone. I have searched the OverDrive help with no success. Please help!!

      Unfortunately, an upgraded version of the OverDrive app (to ios7) may be causing the issue. That upgrade created a bit of an issue for SYNC titles because they don’t live outside of the normal OverDrive system and it is likely preventing the transfer. Unfortunately, we no longer have those titles available so I cannot re-provide them.

    Will Anthony and Cleopatra be available for download later this week?

    1. afadmin

      Suzy, it will be. There has been a whole series of mishaps with the file. Our brave hosts are working them out now. We will message everyone when the file is ready!

    I do not have Windoze!
    I do not have any Apples!

    I have Linux! Which is superior to them both. So why let thousands languish because you do not cross compile your proprietary software (OverDrive) for Linux OS??? Why do you discriminate against us?

    1. afadmin

      Don’t mean to discriminate! The publishers and OverDrive are offering the titles and the delivery system for free as a commitment to build teen audio literacy–QUITE generous. Although, we would love to be Linux friendly, we have to be content with what has been shared with us.
