How do I transfer audio files from my I-tunes library to nook audio player?
You need to export your itunes music in mp3 format. The nook will not play the M4A format or AAC format that apple uses. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=export+itunes+music+to+mp3+fo

to do so:
- open itunes
- in the taskbar at the top go to edit
- select preferences
- make sure you are under the "General" tab
- select "Import Settings..."
- select the drop down arrow labeled "Import Using:"
- sleect MP3 Encoder
- hit OK
now whenyou right click on a selected song,the menu should now say "Create MP3 Version" as opposed to before where it most likely said "Create AAC Version." After itunes has converted the selected song(s) you may have trouble finding the MP3 version. The easiest way to ensure that the song you want to place on your nook is the MP3 version, is to open the audio from My Documents. (this may sound like a long process but it is quite simple)
- you can simply open your audio folder (to do so varies for each computer so I insinuate that you know how to do this) which contains your music and search the name of the song in the search bar (which also may vary for each computer, you may have to open "search" from the start menu)
- or you can open various folders within the audio/my music folder and further within the "itunes" folder to reach your song
after locating your song you should see that there is both an mp3 version and an mp4 (to ensure the song is an mp3 version, slect the song desired, right click , and select "properties;" under properties and under the general tab you should see where it says "Type of File:" there it should say MP3) select the mp3 version of your song and drag, copy and past, or send to (found in the right click menu) your nook and into the "my music" folder.
after properly ejecting your nook, and opening audio player, your mp3 songs should play.
I hope this helps - after spending forever trying to get my songs on my nook i felt stupid after realizing how simple and easy it really was. If you got lost or this didn't work for you please reply, otherwise I wish you luck

I followed your directions to put my music on my nook, but my nook still says that I need to upload files when I open the audio player. I've checked the folder for music when I connect my nook to my computer, and the files are all in MP3 format, but for some reason they won't come up in my nook. Any ideas?

I'm having this same issue. I have the nook Wi-Fi, and my mp3s (I checked to make sure) are ending up on the internal memory, but aren't recognized when I open the software. Help!

Same problem; went from cd to Rhapsody (MP3 format) to transfer to Nook. All the songs show up in "audio" but do not play. The Nook shows the titles, so why won't they play?
I am not using a sd card. Would that work better?

Strange. So you do the following:
1] Tap the 'audio' button
2] Tap a song on the list
3] The audio player comes, showing the name of the song, its CD & artist (sadly, no cover image )
but no sound comes out? Does the play/pause button (2nd from left) show an arrow or the pause button? Is the volume up (click the first grey button to make sure it is turned up)?
When you plug it into your Windows computer, navigate to the "my music" folder in explorer, and right cick on the .mp3 file, does it say
Type of file: MP3 Format Sound (.mp3)
According to the user manual,
MP3: Audio files that use the MPEG-1Audio Layer 3 digital audio encoding format. ANy MP3 file can be played, irrespective of its sampling frequency and bit rate.
It works fine for me, albeit the fact the audio player is quite rudimentary.

FINALLY!!!! I got mine to work but ? The volume is ALL they way up and I put the nook to my ear and I can barely hear it if it's totally quite in the room. I'm dissappointed, if I wanted to wear headphones all the time, I could easily just listen to my mp3....
