****OverDrive Media Software for MAC****
I use OverDrive Media software to borrow audio books from my library.
On MAC OS X (Leopard), on my first download, I got this unfriendly message:
"This version of OverDrive Media Console does not support media in the 'WMA audiobook' format."

As most of the digital library's audio books are WMA format, I have to use my WinXP Netbook to get the job done.

I transfer the audio books to a cheap Sansa Fuze that I use for gym and physical activity. It handles WMA and MP3 formatted files.

Since I don't want to listen to my borrowed audio books on the MAC, I don't understand why the MAC won't even agree to handle the file's licence for future transfer to MP3 device. I am new to MACs. This rivalry between Apple and Microsoft made evident by it's refusal to accept WMA files is affecting my appreciation of the MAC products.

This application forces you to enable disk mode and manually manage your music for it to transfer audiobooks to your iPod. Having to manually manage your iPod pretty much defeats the whole purpose of iTunes.

This is not a Mac OS X good citizen application. It leaves badly named temporary files in your download directory. By default it stores audio files inside a Media directory it creates in the Documents folder instead of the standard Music directory. Finally, it stores files as audiobooks as MP3s instead of .m4ps which completely negates all the features of the iPod for working with audiobooks.

Find controls at the top and bottom of the screen difficult to put away. Sometimes they slip away by themselves after a default period - other times I end up closing and restarting app. Using iPad.
