Chuck, Thanks for the information. Went to try using your info and what do you know, this morning the Nook (not NC) cable worked. Like the other poster, sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't connect. Had read in other threads that there were connection problems and I've experienced it with flash drives too.

Something to try, takes less than 10 minutes. reinstall NC driver (so PC can recognize):
Check to see if computer recognizes NC.
Wow, less than 10 minutes is still a long time to clear up this problem. Any idea if this is a Windows or NC problem? I.e., should we be telling B&N/Sam about it and asking for a fix?
If I remember (and I'm not in an impatient mood) I'll try this "less than 10 minute" solution the next time my PC won't mount my NC drives.

Yup, this is what I did to get it to work. But then my card didn't show up and I had to run Nook off and on again to get it to reappear. The card had to be removed and reinserted while the Nook was off.
Too many problems!!

OK, ran into this problem today. Tried the driver uninstall/reinstall that chuck4prez described above.
First problem is that the NC does not appear in the list of USB Mass Storage Devices. I find a generic "USB Mass Storage Device" listed among the USB Host Controllers and Root Hubs. When I double click this device and look at the Manufacturer property under the Details tab and it says "Compatible USB storage device". I have a feeling this is the right device because it disappears from the list when I unplug the NC and reappears when I plug it in again.
I right clicked and uninstalled the driver then clicked Action and did the scan for new devices. The NC was found and the new driver was installed. I didn't get any options so I couldn't choose automatic (or anything else). The autoplay windows popped up and the NC seems to be recognized now.
Any idea what causes this and if this uninstall/reinstall will have to be done periodically?

Mine recognized it for awhile and then stopped, so expect it's going to be an ongoing problem!
Perhaps this is an issue B&N can address with the next update?

I had the same problem. After trying everything, I took the NC USB cord back to B&N. They were kind enough to trade me for another and the problem disappeared. The old cord looked fine, it just stopped connecting properly to my computer.
