Help Overdrive WMA DRM

I love my Fuze! Love it! I love it so much I haven't yet bothered to put the Rockbox firmware on it. That's how much I looooooove my Fuze.

I use my portable player primarily for listening to audiobooks. I like the Fuze's ability to resume playback where you left off in an individual file even if you've gone off to listen to some music in the meantime. I'd prefer real bookmarking, but this is a very close second best.

One of the main reasons I haven't gone with Rockbox yet is that several libraries I belong to offer downloadable audiobooks through either Overdrive or Netlibrary, both of whom distribute in the protected WMA format. Overdrive is starting to do mp3 audiobooks, but the majority of available books are still in protected WMA format.

What I want to know is this: Is there any way for me to get the Fuze to recognize these protected files as audiobooks? I've only tried one so far using overdrive and there doesn't seem to be a way for me to choose a destination folder. Once they are on the player, I can't move them about freely, I get an error message. I'd like to be able to get them into the audiobooks folder or otherwise have them tagged as audiobooks so I can avail myself of the playback resumption feature. Has anyone out there figured this out yet?

Thanks for any help you can give.
