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.

How Much Built-in Memory?

How much built-in memory does the Nook Color have?  Are there various built-in memory  options, or just one?

The NOOKColor comes with 8GB of built-in memory of which 5GB is available for the user.  The other 3GB is used by the operating system for its own files and organization. 

 

There is only one "built-in" memory option - the above mentioned 8GB.  You can optionally add a micro SDHC card of up to 32GB for additional storage.

Then why does my nook color say it has 1 gig of memory?

Because the rest of it is in a hidden partition that is used for the OS, B&N apps, ebooks, and other B&N purchases. The latest software update for the NC adds a memory gauge for the hidden partition.
