Using memory card

I'm sorry if this is posted else where and I just didn't find it.

 

How do I move my ebooks to the memory that I bought for my nook?  

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance with this.   :smileyhappy:

Re: Using memory card

Skim the manual on the subject of side loading, it's a great start.

 

The manual is loaded on your nook or can be downloaded from this web site.

Re: Using memory card

Tboner,

 

Thanks for the suggestion.  I'm feeling really stupid, but I don't find a section on 'side loading' in the manual.  I've read the sections regarding memory cards and managing folders on a supplemental microSD card and I've followed the directions.  Is there any way to determine if I've put some of my books on the memory card?

 

Again Thanks for the assistance.

Re: Using memory card

Scanning for new content should update your books in either location.

 

I suggest using calibre for book managment and side-loading:  http://calibre-ebook.com/

 

It divides the built in memory and add-in card quite clearly and makes moving and tracking what is where quite easy.

Try the sideloading video tutorial:

When you install a microSD card, and plug your nook into your computer, it will show up as two different devices (disk drive letters).

Start on Page 129 of the manual and read the next 6 or 8 pages or so. (Connecting the nook VIA USB or something close to that).

 

Icebike's comments on the tutorial are good if you have broadband too.

 

I sometime wish that you could rate the manual like you can books, it's a little scattershot and depends on you're being a little tech oriented :-)
