Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Using via USB

Suggest reading the User Guide.  That message indicates connection as an external drive to your comp, to use as Nook again, you must eject.

Please read the User Guide.

Re: Using via USB

When you see that message it means that your Nook is conected to your computer as though it was an external drive.  You can move files to and from it in this state.  Drag a a book to the Nook's My Documents folder.  Do not put it in the B&N folder.  

To return to use as a Nook reader, select eject.

Open My Library, check for new content.  You should see the book listed.

 

Read: "Managing Files" section on page 164 of the User Guide as well as "Connecting your Nook to your computer" on page 155.

 

Using the forum search function is also a good idea before starting a thread that exists already.
