Tab Check for new content. (not check for new B&N content).
Also make sure you disconnected only AFTER doing a Safely Remove or Eject.
Remember these side loaded things should all be put in their proper directories and the must be of the right types: mp3 jpg png, etc/

QUIT, possibly you didn't put them in the correct folder. Nook is touchy that way. Wallpaper has to be put in the Wallpaper folder only, and if I understand the manual correctly, subfolders within Wallpaper won't be recognized, so just put all your wallpaper files in that folder without trying to group them in subfolders. You can only select one wallpaper at a time anyway. Screensavers have to go into the Screensaver folder, and you *can* make sub-folders in that one. I have one labelled photos, one labeled LOLs, and one I call Test for when I want to just put one file in it to see how it looks on the nook.
Also, the files need to be .jpg or (1 other format I can't remember, check your manual). And finally, when you disconnect the Nook from the drive, first use "eject" or "dismount" before unplugging it from your computer. I think dismount is used by Linux people, but for windows people you should be able to right click the Nook drive and then select eject, or eject safely. Wait until the Nook screen changes out of usb mode, then unplug it. If you don't do this, the Nook may not recognize files you loaded. I'd hook it back up to usb and delete the files you loaded, and then start over. Your music files need to go in the music folder, btw. Good luck!

I did all that and the music and screen savers are still not on my nook!!
Are they on your nook when you look at them via the computer?
If all else fails, and you can see them on the nook in the proper directories then properly eject the nook and power it all the way down, and re-start it.

If you get music out of Itunes are they in MP3 format??
No, iTunes music is not mp3 format. Mp3 files have an extension of mp3.
There is a way of converting non-drm iTunes music to mp3. Search the boards for directions.

Well...from experience...I have a very small ipod for music (it was designed for this), it even shows pictures in color! I have the nook to read books...just like they use in there advertising as...A BOOK READER! I just don't understand why you would use it to show pictures or play music. I suppose those music players are taking up way too much room!

Did you wait long enough? I have about 300 mp3's on my Nook. When I select the "Open Audio Player" button it takes about 5 minutes for a list of music to appear. Everything on the Nook is in slow motion, from turning pages to navigating through the menus to playing music. This is not a 1.2 problem, it has been this way since 1.0.
Except for the screen size the BN reader on my iPhone is a better eBook reader and music player.
Why have music on your Nook? It's kind of nice to have background music while you read.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Quit, people are trying to help you. You need to convert your iTunes to mp3 format. If you search the boards, you will find very clear direction about how to do this. I searched for "audio player" and found excellent instructions. I followed them and was able to convert my iTunes to mp3 and play them on my nook. Instead of asking the same question over and over again (and over again), do some research, actually take the advice of others, and make it work.
