I am attempting to download an audiobook from my local library through WILBOR. According to their website, you need OverDrive to support these files. So I downloaded everything on my phone and went to transfer the audiobook from my computer to the phone and it says file type unsupported. Does anyone have experience with this? Do I need to do something different? Thanks in advance!!

Any solutions to this? I too am trying to download audio books from my local library.

Yeah as uberjam545 mentioned wma files won't run (at least in the standard music player) on the optimus.

I havn't tested poweramp, personally I'd take the .wma files and convert them to .mp3 or .ogg

You could google 'bonk audio converter' also known as 'fre:ac' or free audio converter, I use it for most of my simpler conversion.

Actually if you use bonk you can also get away with using .acc/.m4a audio compression, this will get a smaller file with a similar loss to .mp3 and .ogg

The trick with .acc is that it's a somewhat generic audio format and doesn't necessarily work with all devices (similar to the .avi format for video, there are many different codecs that use the same extension while providing entirely different files), but I can confirm the bonk codecs works with the optimus s

All those acronyms and weird words I'm looking at nearly all red underlines :D
