Transferring books from one Nook to another

I had an issue with my Nook wifi and B&N is sending out a new Nook to replace it. How do I transfer what I've already downloaded in my first Nook to the one I'm getting before I have to send it back to B&N?

Re: Transferring books from one Nook to another

There should be no problem.  

  1. Deregister the old and register the new and that will bring you up to date with B&N content.  
  2. If you have sideloaded content, you will have to load that onto the new Nook manually as you did with the old one.

Re: Transferring books from one Nook to another

Which nook do you have?


If you have the N1E, you can copy your "B&N downloads" folder to your computer before deregistering your current device.  Then when you get your new device, you can copy the contents back into the "B&N downloads" folder on your new N1E.  This will save you from having to re-download all your books from B&N.


If you have the N2E, B&N doesn't give you access to your downloads folder so you'll have to re-download all your books.
