NetLibrary Titles Now Available For Your iPod

What do the authors Lillian Braun Jackson, Carl Hiaasen and Sharyn McCrumb have in common? You can now listen to the eAudio versions of their books (currently over 800 titles) on your iPod using your Fauquier County Public Library-NetLibrary account!

Until just recently, NetLibrary's collection of eAudiobooks were only compatible on devices that used the protected WMA format. eAudiobooks in protected WMA format cannot be played on iPods. iPods use the .aac file format which does not support the Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection required by eAudiobooks in protected WMA format. This DRM technology allows checked out items to expire on the due date, a feature that .aac technology does not offer.

In light of the popularity of iPods (many library patrons have asked for this service), this week, NetLibrary launched a new and improved Media Center for downloading and listening to eAudiobooks, including those which are iPod compatible, meaning you can now transfer and listen to eAudiobooks on a wide range of portable devices, including Apple iPods, iPhones and many other MP3 players.

To take full advantage of these exciting new features, you will need to login to your NetLibrary account and download the new version of Media Center.
