I have had my nook color for a few years now and have never had a problem. My version is 1.4.3. Normally i play games that i already have installed-however last night I decided that i wanted to get the sequel to 2 games-1)Snark Busters-High Society-which i could buy and download (after about 15 minutes) and (2) Twisted Lands: Origin.( I have the first 2 Twisted Lands but apparently the 3rd one is for Nook Tablet and the Nook HD's). My question is why? I also have Lost Souls:Enchanted Paintings which since i bought it has been giving me the message that "your external memory is full" What is exteernal memory?
1) My device info says I have 49% left in BN, 10% in Other Storage Available and "even after inserting and formating a new 8gb micro sd card--it STILL shows only 10% storage available". The sd card only has solitaire, stray souls and alabama smith - i have no pics, music, mags, etc on the card.. Is there a fix?? (already tried a different card-same result
2) I broke down and not only bought a Nook HD but seeing as nothing was really different on it -I returned it the next morning, deciding that I LOVE MY NOOK COLOR so much that I am a fan for life. Like the iphone is now up to #5- BN wants us to upgrade--apparently that is the only way I can get sequel apps and new ones. QUES-if they ar available for tablet and HD WHY oh WHY has BN just skipped over the Color.
NOOK COLOR has a ton of fans which I Idiscovered from browsing the BN site, before I wrote this.
DEAR BN~~why have you allowed Alawar and G5 and others to skip us???? You are not even making Color anymore ! Again iIask WHY??
3) Forgive me for such a long Q&A , but I guess I finially needed to air my new frustrations. and seek answers. OH one more thing-when i went to see the Screen Shots" of the games all that shows for 3-4 panels is the LOGO for the game, even tried it with games I was not going to buy. ALL the developers games shoed thte same thing so P.S
I wrote this out of support for the Nook Color and if "the customer is always right",, and "customer satisfaction" is a mantra of BN then WHY HAVE YOU ABANDONED US???

1: B&N doesn't decide which devices an application will be available for. The writer of the application controls that.
2: It is possible that these sequels require higher performance hardware -- the Nook Color is what, 700MHz Single Core, while the Nook Tablet was a Dual Core (and the HD is over 1GHz dual).
3: Applications only install to the internal memory, the SD card essentially is only used for "side-loaded" music and image files. It does not show in the memory usage report.

Dear Mr. Wulfraed,
Thank You for your reply and i understand what you are saying.
Under Settings/Device info/Other storage available it shows that I have 95.78MB free of 1.00GB = 10%.
Can you suggest a way to increase this?
When I have tried to download some games a Pop Up occurs telling me that the Internal Storage is Full.
Is this the same thing as Other Available Storage?
I await your reply based on the satisfactory answer I recieved to my initial inquiry (rant??) Anyway, since I see that some things are for the Nook HD and + or for the Tablet, would athe tablet meet my needs better ?( I am limited in my income and truly love my Color)

Has your device been repatitioned?
From what I've read, the Color and Tablet models shipped with the partitioning set to where B&N content only got something like 256MB; the rest was allocated to user space (stuff you loaded using a USB connection).
The stores supposedly have a bootable SD card that can repartion the device giving more space to downloaded content. Make sure to save any stuff you loaded first - the change likely wipes out the memory contents; downloaded stuff should reload when asked.
