Downloading Audiobooks after Upgrading to IOS 5

Advice from the Tech Librarian at NHSL for those of you who have upgraded your Apple products to ios 5:

If you have upgraded to ios5 things work just a little differently now with the WMA audiobook to iPhone/iPod transfer.

Uninstall and reinstall the OverDrive Media Console software before beginning. You may also want to update iTunes.

Check out, download, and start the transfer from the OverDrive Media Console as usual. Make sure your iPhone/iPod is plugged into your computer, iTunes is running and your device is recognized by iTunes before starting the transfer with the OverDrive Media Console.

The transfer will place the WMA audiobook directly onto your iPhone/iPod and into its own playlist. You should see the author listed as the name of the new playlist.

The file is already marked as an audiobook and should resume playback and not be shuffled into your music.

Find the audiobook under your iPod's playlists, not in the music or audiobook folder.
