"sorry unable to open this book" that i was already reading

HI Everyone,

 

I got a nook about 2 weeks ago and fell in love straight away. I finished reading my first book quickly and now half way through my new book is says "sorry unable to open this book." I've turned it on and off a few times but it still says the same thing. My other books are opening fine.

 

Please help. I'm sad.

Archive it and then unarchive it.

Thanks you so much for your response, Prof.

Is archiving the same as deleting? how do i unarchive it?

In your My B&N Library under Item Details and Options you will find archive.

It was a free ebook (gutenberg project) so its not in My B&N Library. My only options are Read (which obviously doesn't work for this particular book) and delete.

I was hoping there would just be a fix, but sometimes the obvious solutions are the best

 

Thank you for your time :smileyhappy:

This has happened to me a number of times after disconnecting from USB.

 

It has ALWAYS been resolved by a reboot of the NOOK.

Thanks, Prof. Your archive/unarchive solution worked for me when I couldn't open a book I had purchased after the lending period had expired.

Re: "sorry unable to open this book" that i was already reading

I realize this is an old topic I am bumping, but I ran into this issue tonight.  It was on one of my pdf files I had gotten from a friend and side loaded.  I was halfway through the novel he is working on when the issue came up.  I found this topic, but seeing as it was not something that I could archive that would not work, so I thought to change the text size on the file, now it is working just fine. 

 

Hope this might help someone else out.

This tip worked perfectly for me. Thanks for throwing it in even if it was a few months late.
