So has anyone else noticed that they cannot access their ewishlist? When I go to look it is not there and it's annoying me. I have just over 200 books in that thing that I can't see.
I've also found that you cannot archive from the nookcolor and maybe I am a little confused but I also cannot check for new content.
Is there anyone who has a clue about any of this? I was in BN and they kinda had no idea what I meant!
Also, what else is changing?

Re Archiving, while you're in the Library screen, hold down on a book (maybe 2 seconds) and a pop-up menu with additional options will be displayed. One of these will be Archive.
To download new content, there's a little icon on the lower left corner of Library. Looks like a circle made of 2 arrows. Press that to update.
Hope this helps!

Re: Archiving, I think I love you!!!! It worked.
Updating, I tried that last night and nothing happened. Then again maybe nothing was supposed to - I did it after archiving on the actual computer.
I miss my 3g!

I did not notice this until you mentioned it. I went to check the user's guide and it states on Page 56 that the "WishList" on BN.com does not show on our NOOKColor and we would need to create a new one because the "WishList" on BN.com also contains other material.
However, this does not make any sense because we had to create a "eBook WishList" for the Nook which only contains our ebooks. This is the list I want on my NOOKColor.
I think this is a MAJOR problem and they need to fix and fix soon. I will not keep two separate eWishLists and I will not create a new one for the NOOKColor.

I agree NanaLou.
I printed out the guide, cause oddly enough I like using it as I use my nook, ie trying theings out.
I will get on reading it tonight.
Another thing I noticed, last night I added something to the wishlist on Nookcolor and it's not in my wishlist on the site.
I see glitches in the future.

All of your archived books show on the shelves page... they are all grouped together at the bottom of the page.

I think the wishlists are separate because of the content that will be available for the NOOKcolor that is not usable on the nook, such as the ebooks with video content and the kids books and so on. Probably going forward there will be a way to separate them out, but I am not sure now that you could create any wishlist on BN.com and have the items in it show up on your nook. What I mean is the ebook wishlist is a default one for nook. There may as yet be no easy way to make it an all in one wishlist for both devices, since they are 2 separate types of devices with similiarities.
I know what I am trying to say and perhaps it will still be unacceptable to you, but BN won't have any hard and fast idea of how many people this will affect until they have steady sales for NOOKcolor. They have no idea how many people are cross platformers and will want a wishlist that is available for nook, NOOKcolor, and their phone and PC. There may be a lot and they will get that information and try to come up with a solution. But right now it seems that because the NOOKcolor will be able to use certain content the nook can't, one main wishlist for both isn't going to work. While you can read most things from BN on the NOOKcolor that you can on the nook (except the few BN ebooks still in PDB format), the reverse isn't true.
It might be really annoying for someone to shop on the nook and to go ahead and buy something and find out it is for the NOOKcolor only so it appears the shop section for the nook is separate from the one for the NOOKcolor as well. It would also be frustrating to go through a lot of content that can't be used on the nook when shopping for ebooks on it. I assume that is why the wishlists are separate because the shop sections are. This is why in order to get the free classics this past summer you had to go online on the BN site and couldn't do it from your nook. It's the same with nookstudy-that shop area is not linked to the nook or to the other areas of BN.com, so I don't think the wishlists are.
Also keep in mind that since the NOOKcolor will be open to other types of things, you will probably have to have multiple wishlists on it. That may be the solution that works in the future.
