Instructions you need to download and install
Audio Pod software are also there.
After registering, you will receive an email containing your Drag-and-Drop Library
Card used to configure your audiobook player.
However, you should remember your assigned Account Number and Password.
You may need it to 'Complete Your Setup' manually.
Start the Player
Locate the Audio Pod Audiobook Player icon
on your desktop.
Using the LEFT mouse button, double-click on the icon.
Complete Your Setup
Drag your Library Card from your email client and Drop it on your Audio Pod
audiobook player to complete your setup.
If your email client will not allow this, use the 'Select All' option, then
drag-and-drop the entire email message to the Audiobook Player. You will
receive an audio confirmation of a successful drop. If you are
still unsuccessful, manually enter your Assigned Account
Number and Password on the 'Setup Dialog' of the Audiobook Player.
Drag-n-Drop Your First Book
Drag-n-Drop the book cover image shown here onto the Audio Pod Player.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some web browsers do not display the correct mouse icon
for Drag-n-Drop Audiobooks, even when the drag-n-drop operation is being performed
correctly. If the mouse icon shows nothing is being dragged, just do the drag-n-drop
as though the icon was correct.
Now push the play button
on the Audio Pod Player.
Things to check are:
1. If the book cover appeared on the player, make sure your speakers are connected and turned on.
2. Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
3. Return to the Setup Dialog and re-enter your Account Number and Password.
4. Make sure your firewall allows FTP transfers. Read the firewall manual. DO NOT TURN IT OFF!
5. If you are using Internet Explorer, make sure that http://www.audiopod.ca is a trusted site.
and we will send it to you by email. You should have it within a minute or two.
I Cannot Find the Audio Pod Icon
If it is not on your desktop, you can find it using the 'Start' box at
Start -> All Programs -> Audio Pod -> Audio Pod
Windows said I am not allowed to do this
When prompted, select 'ALLOW'.
How to Drag and Drop
Place the mouse pointer over the book cover shown here. Depress and hold the
left mouse button down. With the left mouse button held down, drag the mouse
pointer over to the Audio Pod Player. When the mouse pointer is over the
Audio Pod Player, release the left mouse button. *** IMPORTANT NOTE: In some
versions of Windows, the 'drag-pointer' does not always appear when dragging
from some browsers or mail clients. Do the Drag-and-Drop anyway, it will work.
How Do I Allow Access Through The Firewall?
If your Audio Pod starts, but attempts to drop books are unsuccessful, you may be having problems getting through your firewall. The approach recommended by Microsoft is to grant Firewall exceptions for Audio Pod utilities, using the following steps.
To manually configure a program-based exception, start the Windows Firewall use either
Control Panel -> Windows Firewall
Control Panel -> Security Center -> Windows Firewall
Click the Exceptions tab.
Click Add Program button.
Use the browse option to add the Audio Pod Player. The default installed location is:
How Do I Make the Audio Pod Library a Trusted Site
If you are using Internet Explorer as your web browser, you may need to tell the browser that the Audio Pod Library is a 'Trusted Site'. This is a common problem when using Vista and Windows 7. With your browser open, from the tool bar select:
Tools -> Internet Options
On the 'Security' tab, select the 'Trusted Sites' option and press the 'Sites' button. Enter the web address
in the website text entry box.
Uncheck the checkbox that requires this site to use server verification (https:).
Press the 'Add' button. The Audio Pod Library address should appear in the websites list.
Close the open dialog boxes. You may need to restart your browser to make the changes effective.
