Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Watch the video Sideloading content onto your NOOK.

 

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/nook/video.asp

 

If that doesn't help, repost in this thread.

 

Note: If you downloaded from My Library on this site, you will probably have to rename the files to something like BookTitle.epub.

I found the Nook color User Guide useful in this area.  Look at page 48 subtitle: Transferring files from your computer to the Nook Color.  You can also transfer photos and change your wallpaper to a fav photo.  If you don't have the Nook Color User Guide you can download it from BN.com.

Hoping this helped.

Re: Can anyone help me?

Ok, so i just bought this Nook color. im on the web in the android market and it is not letting me download a game.

i was under the impression from the "geek squad guy" that it ran on 2.2 and i could download straight from the web. did he lie to me or is there a trick im missing?

 

thanks

You have been misinformed by the "geek squad guy".  The update to Android 2.2 for the NookColor is due to be released sometime early next year (probably in January or February 2011).  At that time B&N will have their own app store available.

The nook color is not running 2.2 yet.  There is talk that it will be updated to it sometime in Q1 and that BN will have their own app market for it not the full Android market.

heh, I was in Staples the other day and the salesman was pitching how cheap eBooks are at Amazon while selling a Kindle. They are only $1-2 each. I can only imagine the puckered look on their faces when they started browsing for eBooks.

The short answer is he didn't know what he was talking about. The Nook Color will have apps available through BN sometime in Q1. There currently are no plans to allow installing apps from the android market.

 

The Nook Color shipped with v2.1 with a promised update to v2.2. The update will probably happen around the same time BN opens their app store.
