Can I return Overdrive audiobooks early to make room in my account to download new items?

Early releses of the OverDrive Media Console app didn't allow audiobooks to be returned early. With the release of OverDrive Media Console v2.4 for Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone, users can now return audiobooks. 
The system requirements are still the same. The free apps can be installed on phones and devices running…

  • Android v1.5 (or newer)
  • Touch screen BlackBerry OS v4.7 (or newer)
  • Non-touch screen BlackBerry OS v4.5 (or newer)
  • Windows Phone 7 (or newer)

Unfortunately, you still can't return audiobooks on a Kindle or iOS device. Once you have reached the 5 item limit on your Overdrive account, you have to wait for one of your items to expire before downloading another item.   However, you may return ebooks early using the Overdrive app or Kindle app.  Select the item then from the menu pick Delete and then Return then Delete.
