can't transfer files from PC

Today was the first time I tried connecting my HD+ to my PC. I wanted to sideload a movie.

 

When I connect, all it shows me is a drive labled "nook" and it has only two folders in it:

.fseventst

.Trashes

 

I thought I'd try to copy a movie and see if it would show up in my files. It told me the drive was write protected.

I cannot see any "My Files" or "My Video" folders

I cannot see my SD card

 

I do see the USB icon when I plug the NHD+ in, but if I change the storage to "camera" I don't get a folder at all on my PC and the "Nook" drive goes away.

 

I am running Windows XP and have tried rebooting both the PC and the Nook

 

Any help? I'd like to sideload some vids onto my SD card.

Re: can't transfer files from PC

1) Restart your Nook and try.

 

 

2) Restart your computer and your Nook and try.

 

From what I'm reading in the forums there are some people who are having problems with the folders showing up.

 

Things that work are:

 

a) removing SD Card if you have one.

b) restarting Nook.

c) restarting Computer.

d) reassigning drivers for Nook.

 

When you set it to Camera Mode (PTP) it really should work just fine. Not sure why you don't see any folders.

Re: can't transfer files from PC

FYI, I received an email from Calibre saying that the MTP software will not work on XP.  I wonder if this is the same problem that I had.  I was able to see a bit more though when I updated Windows with Windows Media Player 11 which is available at Windows downloads.  Hope that helps a bit.

XP has no built in MTP support. Windows Media Player contains the MTP drivers you need for XP.
But Calibre seems to work only with those Windows versions that have built in MTP support.

I have tried everything in this thread including erase and deregister to no avail. I just got the Nook Tablet.

Re: can't transfer files from PC

The nook Tablet is not an HD/+, are you in the correct forum?

Re: can't transfer files from PC

I cannot copy any files to my Noon HD, in either USB or Camera mode.  In Camera mode, it shows up as MyNook but I canot copy any files to the "camera".  I've installed both WMP 11 and the Windows MTP Porting Kit.  Neither helped at all.  I've rebooted both the Nook and the PC several times.  I do not have wireless.  How does this problem get fixed?  I'm almost sorry that I bought a Nook.
