Honestly, I have no idea what to ask you. I have a whole list of books on overdrive and now I can't find any of them. I am obviously not very good with computers. I really would appreciate some help thank you. This is really frustrating.


PS ignore the image oh, it was just something I wanted to delete thank you.

Hi Moonyeen

What is this "overdrive" that you mention? Please can you provide more information.

Overdrive is an app that relates to public libraries in the United States. It allows you to borrow ebooks and audiobooks. You can request a book and get on a waiting list, and you will be notified when it is available.

Hi Moonyeen1289, so Overdrive is a web site you should be able to go to that web site in any browser and you should not get a blank page. I did test this on my windows computer and android tablet, I used Firefox and the sit worked just fine.

But from your second message, I think you are talking about their app called Overdrive on the google play store. I have not used it in years, I did not like it very much, it was so slow. When I went to the web site just now they don't mention the Overdrive app anymore, But they do mention Libby which I have used and liked, much faster than Overdrive. They also have a new app for school students called Sora, your school has to sign up for it, then you can use it. Sora

Back to the Overdrive app, sometimes in Android apps you have to empty the cache or uninstall and reinstall them. you can do this by opening settings and opening the app section, go down to the Overdrive app and click on it then click on storage, you should see cache and data. Cache is safe to delete, worst that can happen is you have to download a book again. Data can be deleted, but before you try that make sure you have the email account and password that you used to create your account, you also need to know your library, and library card number to put back in the app. Hope that helps.
