    Default WMA Audiobooks

    I just downloaded Overdrive Media Console to my computer, including the required Windows upgrade successfully.

    I then checked a WMA Audiobook out of my library and attempted to transfer it to my Nook.

    The message I am getting is :

    " The format of this title (WMA Audiobook) is not compatible with this device.

    In the instructions from my library, it specifically lists the Nook as a compatible device.

    Can anyone provide some help please?

    Thanks very much.

    I just successfully downloaded an MP3 book to the nook from my library - so this appears to be a problem with the WMA books, although the FAQ on Overdrive say the Nook will support WMA files.

    Thanks

    The nook doesn't support WMA files. Only MP3 files for audio.

    Overdrdrive sucks with audiobooks and their website (or the tech support ) is clueless. For example, even though it says that the audiobooks can be transferred to Itunes, it won;t let you. You are better off with another site
