ODM and eAudio Books

Why does my eAudio book open in Open Office?

The Problem:

My eAudio Book opens in Open Office instead of OverDrive Media Console.

The Answer:

Open Office uses the file extension .odm for a word processing document, therefore there is a conflict between Overdrive’s audio type .odm and Open Offices file type .odm. You will need to change which program opens an .odm file.

Please try this procedure and proceed with caution when changing the configuration of your computer.

For Windows Vista and System 7.

  1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Set your Default Programs > Click ‘OK’
  2. Select Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
  3. Under the ‘Extensions’ heading, select ‘.odm’ and click the ‘Change program’ button
  4. Select Overdrive Media Console from the ‘Recommended Programs’ list
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Close
