I just downloaded an audiobook from overdrive and its an ODM file and wont open on my Mac (running El Capitan). Anyone know how to listen to it, or best case, convert it to an MP3?

Pretty sure those files are locked down. Look for an Overdrive App?


Cannot find the Mac App.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

There used to be "OverDrive Media Console" for Mac OS.

See if you can grab the app from here: []

If you downloaded the book via Overdrive Media Console, it should have created .mp3 files. Look in a folder called My Media. User-> Documents -> My Media. I do this all the time with audiobooks I download from my library's website.
