Unhappy Overdrive audiobook download problems masOS

I emailed Overdrive support and got this back from them:
"Find what you needed? Let us know, and we’ll help the next person in line.

Close my support case

Otherwise, we appreciate your message, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

Thanks,

Here's what you told us:

After successfully downloading the < book-name>.odm file from the library GUI, the Overdrive Media Console fails to download the book with a "No internet connection found " error message. I am using an older macBookPro running High Sierra, which a valid macOS for overdrive. I did some research about this problem and it seems that many others are [...]

At least I got an OverDrive Support Case 03518817 response. If/when I get any resolution, I'll let you know. Although, I do not have much confidence that I will get a satisfactory response any time soon. Some research confirms that they (overdrive) had some certificate validation problems that can cause page loading errors.

OverDrive seems to have fixed something because Safari on my High Sierra Mac can now load OverDrive web pages like before AND OverDrive for Mac is working again!

I feel duly chastised for my lack of faith in thinking the problem was intentional on OverDrive's part

That's great!. I did not expect OverDrive to fix the problem so quickly. Just a few days after I got the OverDrive Support Case Number for the "No internet connection..." problem. I also have success today downloading MP3 audiobook files onto my iMac running macos version 10.13.6, High Sierra.

Also, I previously used Overdrive with a PC and I didn't love it. Perhaps it has improved.
If you did need to run another OS to get Overdrive working, Windows is it because it works. You cannot guarantee that it will work on Linux. More aspects of eBook management work better on Windows then Linux.
