Adobe has released Digital Editions v 2.0. There are many improvements with viewing eBooks and activating devices. Be aware that the Loan Period banners may not show proper information, however.
For Sony Readers, be sure it has firmware 1.1 or higher, and that you have the Sony eBook Library Software installed
For iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Blackberries, Windows Phones, and now Nook devices, you can get the OverDrive Media Console app and download eBooks directly to your mobile device.
Also, if you have an iPad or iPhone, you can use the Bluefire Reader app to read your eBook(s), without sync! Simply e-mail your downloaded e-books to yourself (they have an .acsm extension) and open them with Bluefire using your Adobe ID.
If you have version 2.3 or greater of the OverDrive Media Console app, you can now return eBooks early - From the Bookshelf view select Edit >> Delete >> Return and Delete (not just delete!)
We have slideshow videos for more step-by-step views
