Changing name, account on Nook Color

When I first bought my color nook i went on line with it
under my wife's account.....now that I have my own big boy account the nook
does not seem to sync back to my account and cannot find any setting to change
this...

Can I get a hand here please?

Thanks

Re: Changing name, account on Nook Color

So when you got your NC you registered it with your wifes email and password and now you want to use your own email, if I understand you right. Do you want to have separate BN accounts, or are you going to just change the name and email address on her account to yours? Your books will stay with her account if you create a new account in your name. Anyway, to change her account to yours, first unregister your NC, and then go to BN.com and sign in with her email/password. Then go to account settings to change the name and email on her account to yours. Finally, reregister your NC with your email and password. Hope this helps T.

Go to settings and deregister your NC.    Then re-register under your account.

 

BOOKS UNDER YOUR WIFE'S ACCOUNT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO YOU ANYMORE!

 

Purchases go to accounts.   Use a different account and you "lose" all those earlier purchases as far as that particular Nook is concerned.

That's pretty stupid that you have to deregister the device.  That is BN's way of prodding you to buy multiple devices.
