That means there are doing maintenance. Don't panic unless it near your renewal time then you might need to renew. I get that message when the servers are down try in a few hours.

Not panicking, since I got this message before, but it would be great if they could update their error messages nevertheless. Tsk

You've probably already tried this, but just in case, have you checked the settings on your device to make sure it allows passwords and/or form entries to be saved? When I first got my reader I had something set wrong and it wouldn't remember (that was a long time ago before all the Overdrive changes).

Certainly with all the other Overdrive problems I can believe it's the library's fault now, though.
It's definitely the system, since my other three libraries let me sign in, but thanks for trying to help

What big kindle button? The drop down selection between Kindle book and epub book?

I'd like to see numbers around this as well (as someone else suggested). Among all my friends and acquaintances, there is one Nook reader, and she knows another one, and the rest all use kindle.

I thought I had a great idea that if I just made the font really, really small, I'd be able to see the full title and full author name just below the book covers (no hovering or clicking involved)!

Ha...doesn't work at all. Just have a tiny island of covers in the middle of my screen

Boo.

The specified library patron account information is not valid.

Details: Failed HTTP Request. Description = "(null)", Error Message = "Unknown error 0x80072F0D".

The first version of the new Overdrive software had a BIG Kindle button and the rest in some smallish text box underneath.

Also, I think it's safe to say that most people always want to borrow the book in the same format (epub, kindle, pdf). Most likely the only time they would want a different format is when their preferred format is not available. So why not make that a *user* preference? I could set "I want epubs" in My Account and then I would only see the checkboxes when epub is not available. OR, right by the Download button, it would say "you are downloading: epub. Change" And that would allow me to change to a different format.
Actually, I switch back and forth between epub and kindle format depending what reader I want to read the book on, but I won't get pdf unless there's no other format available, since both my readers support pdf but not well at all.

Hooray! That was really annoying. Now they need to add back the extra information about number of copies to your holds list so you know your place in line. Those are probably my biggest complaints about the new format. Otherwise I like the new book cover view for my tablet, but I want to have list view as an option for when I'm on my computer.

I have an even better complaint then that. I want to be able to click once to borrow or reserve. We used to be able to do that. Now we have to click the cover and then borrow or reserve. That to me is more annoying.

It was more than annoying for me because two of my libraries use the same website. So at times I forget which one I was suppose to log in again to.

I don't understand why all the libraries aren't the same. I still have the "You are user 2 out of 4 on the waiting list" information on my books on hold. I also have not had to log in with each book as some others have.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I haven't had these problems! but you'd think all the Overdrive libraries would be the same.
