The Zune 4.7 software and OverDrive

    My family has this software installed on their iPods, called OverDrive (I think that's what it is called) from the public library.  My wife also has it installed on her 2nd generation Zune.  This allows people to download audio versions of books to listen to on their iPods and Zunes.  I'd like to know if OverDrive will work with version 4.7 of the Zune software?  And I'd also like to know if I can only put it on one of my Zunes?  (I've also got a secont generation Zune and a Zune HD.)

    @Doctor Who:Yeah, it should work fine. AFAIK Zune 4.7 just adds support for Windows Phone 7.

    OverDrive doesn't get installed on the devices. OverDrive is mostly just a service used for obtaining digital media. What's necessary for using the media is just compatibility, both with the format and the DRM. It's not really concievable that the Zune would drop support for a format/DRM that it supported in the past, especially a format like this one.

    I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to this topic.  Thank you for your answer.  I've got a follow-up question.  If OverDrive doesn't get installed onto the Zune, then why do I see an item on my wife's Zune called Audiobooks, which is associated with OverDrive?
