I purchased a C4 32 GB micro-sd card for my Simple Touch, but my Nook refused to recognize or format it. Thinking it may be a defective card, I had my daughter try it in her phone & worked just fine. So, now I am wondering if it was the CLASS or the SIZE that my Nook did not like. I called my local B&N and asked for their card suggestion but they had no suggestion to give. In fact, they told me just to "Go to Best Buy, ask them."
Instead of driving 30 minutes to the nearest best buy & asking someone there, I thought I might get the feedback from other Touch owners.
Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

How many books do you have? I've read that you can put approximately 4,000 books on a 1gb card. I have a 2gb card that cost me about $8 and it works fine for me. If I run out of space I'll just transfer the files to a larger card.

I have about 100 books (weighing in at 66 MBs) at the moment. I'm more confused about the whole CLASS thing than the size. From what I've read at numerous sources is that not all devices are compatible with all card classes. So, it's the CLASS that worries me most at this time.

My understanding is that a relalively lower speed card is fine for the Nook. I've seen online that people say class 4-6 works fine for the Nook and that the faster cards are a waste for this use.

I just pulled the 16 GB card from my N1E and put it into my new N2E. Mine is made by Patriot and is a class 4 that I got on sale at one of our local stores.

All sd cards are Class 2 unless otherwise specified by a number in a circle on the card. Since you are only using the card for storage, a Class 2 card is fine. You can pick up a card at Walmart or Target for a decent price. I prefer the Sandisk cards because they have a proven track record of reliability. Find them in the camera department, not the cell phone department.

The NST specs for the micro sd card are 32gb class 6. After seeing how much they cost compared to a 4 gb class 4 card I went with the $5 4 gb card at amazon.
Your card should work in the NST. Perhaps your card needs needs formated in a computer first.
