Any ebooks on the sd card will be displayed in 'My Documents'.

At the main menu, select my library then select 'View my documents'.

@pji

 

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:

 

If your microSD card is good and properly installed and locked into place (see User's Manual and/or the video on the Nook website for this), then your Nook will automatically access the card with no further effort required on your part.

 

In "Settings" under "Available Memory", the microSD card will show up separately.  When your Nook is connected to your computer, the card will show as a separate removable drive -- be sure to Eject it separately, before you Eject your Nook.

 

Everything you sideload to the card will appear in My Documents, not in My B&N Library.

Re: how do i access and use micro SD card?

Okay I put on my card two audio books and do not see them anywhere? and... i put on my main drive in a folder (that i did not create but was there) a audiobook in the audio folder and do not see that one either? 

 

Am I doing it wrong?  Please advise me.  Thanks.

First, go to Settings and make sure that your Nook is seeing the card.
If the Nook is seeing the card go to "My Documents" and tap "Check for New Content":  you should see them.  If that doesn't work, try it again -- sometimes it takes more than one try.
If that doesn't work, turn the Nook all the way off, then turn it on again, go to "My Documents", and check again.

last one i side loaded to card

 

i completely turned off device

i went to documents and asked to update content

Audio books will show up in the Audio area, not in the library, so be sure you are looking there.

If the audio books are not in mp3 format then you will not be able to use them
