Audio Player - Play List Folder-Memory Card use

When I open the Nook thru my computer it lists a Play List folder in the memory. I loaded music there but could not find the songs when opening the audio player and deleted them. Is this something that will be (activated) available in future updates? Or is there a way to use it now?  Loading songs into the folder My Music did not work either only when I loaded it into the folder "Music" was I able to find and play songs.

 

Also how do I load things on my memory card.  I did not see this option?  Is this explained somewhere?

If you have a memory card in your Nook, when you connect the Nook to your computer, you should see two drives, the Nook and the memory card.

 

It is explained in the User Guide.

I am having the same problem. The Nook does not display the playlist and I can't listen to the music I have downloaded.

Re: Audio Player - Play List Folder-Memory Card use

I have searched through the user guide for the answer to this question.  It is not explained very well and I am still not sure how to do this.  I have looked on pages 137-139 and pages 149-154. 

I have a memory card in my nook and I am having trouble with my nook reading my files(I am using this for my music).  Do I need to transfer all of my music to my memory card file and out of the nook file? Will it find it all then or what??  I am a little confused on this.  Sorry for the dumb question but, I feel like the user guide should be more clear!!  HELP!!

Don't know if you got your answer yet.

 

If you've loaded your music files onto your memory card, have you pressed the "Check for new content" under the "My Documents" touchscreen menu?  After you do this your music files will show up in the audio player.  They will all be in a single list, which isn't ideal and hopefully will change with a software update.  Note that it doesn't matter what folders your files are in.  They are all found by the nook and placed in a single playlist.

Hello.  I just purchased my Nook yesterday.  So, you may need to add a little salt to my remarks.

I, too, was unable to play the music that I had downloaded.  When I slowed down and really looked, I found that the music files were not supported, after all.  (I had ass.u.med. that they were ok because they were from windows music files.  Not.)

I re-connected my Nook to my computer, opened the Nook drive (F:  in my case), and

right-clicked on the files and selected "Convert Audio Format."  MP3 was already selected.  I just had to make sure the destination folder was my Nook folder.  (bottom of the dialogue)

When all of the music files on the Nook drive were converted, I deleted the old WMA files.

Whew!  Wa-la!  Music is playing on my nook just fine!

 

Hope that this is helpful to someone... :smileyhappy:

Re: Audio Player - Play List Folder-Memory Card use

The video was very helpful.   However, it did not tell me what to do to convert files to an acceptable format.  And, when I transfered files, they did not automatically convert.   (Maybe I missed a step.)  Is my nook supposed to automatically format, say for instance, WMA files when transferred?

 

Regards,

Anella        :womanvery-happy:

I disagree - you do not see two drives. What you should see is a drive named Nook, unless you have opened a dialogue and "ejected" the nook drive so you can use it while connected. It is then a simple process to open the nook folders and drag and drop any material you want into the proper folders of the nook. Then EJECT the Nook drive, start it up and press for "new content". Should all be there. I do this daily loading PDF files onto my Nook.

Ditto; the Nook and the card show up as separate drives.

Re: Audio Player - Play List Folder-Memory Card use

As the previous three posters have stated you MOST CERTAINLY DO SEE TWO DRIVES if you have an optional micro SD card installed in your nook ad you connect it to your computer.

 

If you have the micro SD card installed in your nook AND you are only seeing one drive then your nook is not recognizing the SD card.  You should read some off the threads about the correct way of installing the card and if that doesn't help, then contact B&N Customer Service and askk for help.
