OneClick Manual Download
Manual Download Process
A manual download option is available if you cannot use the Media Manager to download and transfer an audiobook to your device. Reasons you may need to use the manual download process:
- your device is not compatible with Media Manager. Only Apple devices are compatible with the Mac Media Manager, but the list of compatible devices with Windows Media Manager will grow over time and is found on this OneClickdigital page.
- your Mac's operating system is older than OS 10.6.6, and you are unable to upgrade.
- your Windows computer is older than Windows XP with Service Pack 3.
News for Manual Download Users:
- OneClickdigital is very close to adding more devices to the compatibility list. They are at a half-way point for many devices, where you can use the Media Manager if you watch what format of book you check out. If you have a Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer, please see if this process will work for you.
- An Apple mobile app for OneClickdigital has been released. It is compatible with iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch, as long as the device is upgraded to iOS 3.2 or newer. See our Apple mobile instructions here. If your device is compatible, you no longer need to do the manual download process. The mobile app will download the book directly to the device and manage its playback.
