Was anyone able to download Of Poseidon?  When I click the link to download, I receive an error that the file was not found.

Something's wrong with their geographic-restriction programming. That audiobook is supposed to be available in the US and Canada, but I got the same 404 whenever I tried to get it from home. No problem from work or from my smart-phone.

 

So I set up my smart-phone as a mobile hot-spot, had my computer access Internet through that instead of my Wi-Fi router, and no problems.

 

Added: I don't know for sure, but I think that when I originally clicked the links for The Tempest, what actually downloaded was Of Poseidon. I wasn't paying close attention. But when I got my mobile hot-spot up and running and tried to download Of Poseidon, I found that I already had it but didn't have The Tempest.

Is anyone else having trouble with Overdrive downloading the files? I keep getting an error message to check internet connection (I have high speed cable).

@javabird:

 

I haven't had any trouble downloading using high-speed DSL service.  I had a possibly useful thought; check your PMs.

Re: Free Sync Audiobooks start today!!

In years past, there have been issues with bandwidth downloading the free audiobooks on the first day they are posted.

 

Perhaps waiting a day or two before trying will solve your issue?

Re: Free Sync Audiobooks start today!!

I was finally able to download them by re-downloading the overdrive .odm file and trying again.
