Does anyone else have trouble plugging / unplugging the mini-USB connector into the NOOKcolor? If there's a trick, let me know -- I find it takes three or four tries before my NC is firmly connected.
If I need to exchange the original USB connection cords, do I take this back to the B&N store where it was purchased?

That's typical for a microUSB connector. But...I now am at the point where I can plug it in to charge overnight...in the dark! I read at night, before I go to sleep, and keep the lights out so I don't disturb my wife.....when done reading and the battery is low...I plug it in 'by feel' and let it charge overnight.

Some people have reported similar problems. In some cases, it became easier to connect with use. Others have had it replaced at their local B&N.

"Others have had it replaced at their local B&N. "
Got a replacement what, microusb?
Ours worked fine but now one won't allow a connection- could I get a replacement microusb at my local b&N or do I need to do something online?

Mine was a bit stiff at first. It seems to have loosened up a little, but still requires a little extra force. It's not to the point where I'm concerned about it. I'd rather have it be firmly connected than too loose.
Interestingly, I find the headphone connector very tight. I almost damaged one of my headset connectors trying to pull it out (the sheath around the actual metal connector almost pulled apart when I was trying to pull it out).

I have the same problem it annoys me to no end. Now after having the device for 6 weeks the cord nearest the device micro end is fraying and separating from the casing so I need a new power cord. Not sure where I should go to replace this part of the device. I have to place it just so in order to get the charge going on the device.

Mine is more like it was finicky and now unless I'd try what I call excessive force, it doesn't even go on anymore. I just can't tell if it is the microusb or the nook itself.
