I am new to Nook, but think I understand the instructions to "eject" the drive if it's attached to the USB of my computer. But when I try, I get a message that the Nook drive "is currently in use. If you eject this disk now, you may lose data in any open files. Before ejecting this disk, make sure all files are closed and no multimedia files (such as music or video) are playing." I do not have any music or video files. My options consist of the "X" in the upper right or an "OK" button, both of which close the box with nothing happening. Am I doing something wrong?

When you eject the nook from within windows explorer, make sure that the nook drive is not the open drive in windows explorer. For example, highlight your My Documents or the C: drive, then right click on the nook drive and choose eject. That should avoid the message.

I had this issue with a Vista laptop and probably a reason why I was haivng such trouble with the content I copied over.
I would highly suggest you use Calibre, it can eject the nook without issue. Download link

I use Vista and in the lower right corner of the bottom tool bar is the icon for the nook drive. When I am done, I close the window I was using for the Nook folders. Then I left click the icon and it will pop up about Safely remove hardware, then I click it and it will pop-up message something about you can now safely remove or something to that effect. One time it did not allow me to, but I waited a minute and then tried the left icon and it worked fine.

Safely Remove Hardware isn't really the recommended way to "eject" the nook's drive. Plenty of people have run into problems using that option. It seems to safest way to do it is to double click on My Computer and right click on the Nook's Removable Drive (and the Nook's expansion card drive, if you have one) and select Eject....
