Checkout a Book
Manual download can only use one type of audiobook file (Digital Rights-> Non Protected). Here is a
way to find a compatible book right now.
1. On the OneClick website, choose Advanced Search from Browse.
2. Set at least the first two:
a. All Digital Rights – Non-Protected
b. All Availability – Available
c. All Genre- can pick a subject (Mystery, Biography, etc) to narrow down to the type of
book you like from the start.
3. Click search. This will show you all books that are the correct format and available to check out
right now.
From here, you may wish to use these features:
o Sort By (above first book cover) switched to “Date Added” shows the newest added books first,
o List View button (upper right of book covers, looks like black lines) to show the books with part
of their summary (so you do not have to click on each book to see what it is about),
o Refine Search bar (far left) to narrow down your search further (if you did not set a genre or
other option initially).
When you find a book you want, click on the cover. Use the Checkout Now button to check out the
book.
Download & Transfer the Book
Example done in Safari browser with a book called Ice Whale. Plug your iPod into the computer.
1. Check out a book, or if your book is already checked out go to My Titles (under Browse or your
name) and choose the download (down arrow) button on the cover of your book.
2. When prompted by your browser, let the file Save. Our computer has chosen to put this in the
Downloads folder.
3. Depending on your Safari browser, the downloading progress might show down in the lower left
corner or show in the middle of the screen. When the download is finished, click the file and it
will process and open the folder (you may see a message that Archive Utility is working).
4. When processing is complete, it opens your downloads folder. A folder with your book & its
files are now available for use (blue folder icon).
Note that the ID number assigned to the book by OneClick stays on all folders and files
for the book.
o Do not use the .zip file – this is the unprocessed file you downloaded from the site. You
need the processed book folder.
Open iTunes, if it is not already.
a. Click on File & select Add to Library.
b. Choose the Documents folder, then the folder for your book’s files.
c. Click Open.
iTunes will import the book files. If you go to Albums you will see an album called “unknown.”
At this point, you can change the name of the album if you would like (just click on the title).
We renamed ours “Ice Whale,” the book title.
Move the album onto your iPod. You can do this by:
o clicking, holding down, and dragging the book album to the name of our iPod.
o using the iTunes sync feature.
Disconnect your iPod from the computer.
