How to format card

I have the message that my storage is almost full- but I have a memory card that is empty. So why is this? I am told to format the card but I have no clue how. My laptop has nowhere to insert it (some say to insert it) Any help? I know I will probably have to archive some books...but shouldn't I be okay in space with the card in place?

The NST has partitioned memory.  Some memory is reserved for B&N content, and the amount of memory happens to be hidden from view (about 1 GB, I think, after the operating system is loaded).  Some memory is available for sideloaded content (240 MB).  Plus, you also have the ability to add an SD card for extra memory up to 16 GB.

Once you have inserted the microSD card into the NST, you should be able to go to "settings" - "device info" - "SD card" and then "Format SD card".

 

 

You're SD card will hold sideloaded material.  It will not automatically populate once the internal memory is filled.  To clear up internal memory, you'll have to sideload some books.  After that, you should be able to archive either from the internal memory or from the website.

You may have to choose "unmount" before it will let you format the card.

Re: How to format card

It's called "sideloading"

 

You pull a copy down using the PC program, hook up your nook, and then push the file using the program.  That can go into the extra memory or the SD card.

 

Search the forum.  Here is one thread with links:
