OverDrive Media Console:
OverDrive Media Console utilizes Windows Media Player� 9 Series or newer to play files. The first time that Windows Media Player attempts to open a DRM-protected file, it will alert you that a Security Update must be performed before the file may be opened. The update takes just a few moments, and must be performed before Microsoft Windows Media Player will allow any DRM-protected files to be played.
