OK, I installed the Overdrive app and went to my library account. However, when I try to download a book (check it out virtually), the download doesn;t occur and I get a bunch of gobbledygook in the browser. Am I missing something?
Well, I don't have a rooted NC (but I have used the Overdrive app successfully on my iPhone) so here are a few suggestions. The library files have DRM-encryption. Have you authorized your NC to an ADE account? When I use applications on my iPhone that are linked to ADE, I have to authorize each app separately to my Adobe account (rather than authorizing the iPhone as a device once). Maybe the Overdrive Android app is looking for something similar. Did it prompt you to log-in with your Adobe account info? Is there a setting for authorization anywhere?

Yes, Bookworm_Girl is correct. Go into "App Settings" and look for "eBook Options". You'll see "Authorize this device..." There is where you enter your Adobe ID and Password.

I don't see any "e-book options" under App Settings.

"App Settings" located within the Overdrive app. Right under "Get Books". Within "App Settings" it's in the middle of the screen. You don't even have to scroll down to see it. It says "eBook Options", right under "Audiobook Options".

Ah, yes, thank you.

Now, I get: Error retrieving AdobeID credentials. Key length not 128/192/256 bits. (error code 2003)

I hate DRM.

Overdrive is having system issues now. Let's see what happens when things are back up and running. Also, this explains the error message (gobbly gook) when trying to download books on the NC from the library page.

Edit: Overdrive's up again. Still get the gobbly gook when trying to download on the NC. Sent help request to support@overdrive.com
