I sideloaded books to my mother's nook from my pc. Other than the book name does not appear which makes the books being there useless, I can not open the books. The books ask for cc and I enter and it ask for cc again. This feature no longer unlocks book either.. Help!

I think the trick here is the file extension to your cover image. I've been trying to fix these covers for weeks now and finally read somewhere earlier in this thread that you need a .jpeg (not .jpg) extension. Once I started changing the extensions the Calibre -> Sigil -> Calibre conversion worked for me.

I am also quite disappointed in BN on this issue. Since this thread started, BN has released an upgraded nook color as well as the tablet yet, the issue was not fixed. Additionally, this problem did not exist in the nook first generation. I have tried sideloading these same books into my first generation nook with no problems with image or title. What changed between the first generation and the nook color? Was a deliberate decision made to force us to buy books from BN?

I used to have this problem until someone on this forum showed me the way to correct it using Calibre. I downloaded the Plugin called Modify ePub. Opened it and clicked under Cover to Insert or Replace Cover.
When I add a new book to Calibre I then Edit metadata>Download Cover and select the cover of my choice. Then with the book still highlighted I click on Modify ePub. When I sideload the book to my NC the cover of my choice shows.

The "polish ebooks" plugin for Calibre will also fix covers without significantly restructuring the rest of the book as happens with epub-epub conversion.
