Hi,

Unfortunately, WMA audiobooks from OverDrive are only compatible with select MP3 players and sometimes Apple devices.  You can download them to a PC and then transfer them to select players.  This webpage lists the players that are compatible with OverDrive WMAs: http://www.overdrive.com/drc/audiobook-only.  WMAs from OverDrive are protected files that cannot really be manipulated to put on Android devices like some WMA files can.  The choice of file format and the security present in these files is a conscious decision made by the publishers providing those titles in an effort to prevent piracy and file sharing.

I hope this information is helpful.  Please let us know if we can be of assistance with anything else.
