I may... scratch that, I did overcharge my Nook. I got called away while transfering some new walpapers to my nook and forgot about it for the night. Now my Nook is stuck on the "USB Drive Mode" screen and will not get off of it. I've done everything I've seen online so far, but since my Nook was bought as a Christmas Present from Best Buy, am I screwed?

You can't overcharge it. When we still had an Admin, he was very insistent on this point. If you leave it plugged in, it will stop charging when it's fully charged.
It sounds like your NOOK is frozen.
In general you never want to just unplug it from the computer without ejecting, so go to your PC and right click on it to eject it. Then:
- Can you turn it off by holding the power button for 20 seconds?
- Have you removed and replaced the battery?
Try both things to see if you can get it to respond. Someone else may have other suggestions, but if not 1-800-THE-BOOK Option 2. Customer Service may be able to help you get it to respond, and if not they'll ship you out a replacement. You're definitely not SOL.

I don't believe you can overcharge the Nook...relax.
If you have a Windows PC, open up the Windows Explorer (file viewer, NOT Internet Explorer), finf the nook as a drive under "My Computer", right-click on the Nook and select "Eject"

Sorry, forgot to mention, sometime during the night my computer restarted. In the morning, even though the Nook was still plugged in the computer wasn't recognizing that it was hooked up, so I couldn't unmount it.
-Edit- Should aslo mention I've done all the stuff with the taking out the battery, holding power down etc. etc. etc.

It won't FUBAR it completely if you just unplug it. It can corrupt anything you were in the middle of transferring, so you might have to remove all your sideloaded docs and replace, but it won't kill it.

OK, let me say sorry a second time. I just missed one part of the process.
and I feel stupid.
6) At this point you should fully charge your NOOK using your NOOK USB and charger with any standard AC wall outlet. Charging can take up to 4 hours so be patient. At some point in the charging process the charging LED should illuminate and your E-Ink display may cycle on and off.
In other words, I jumped the gun on making this thread and should of just waited another 10 mins or so.
Thanks for the help though.
