Nook Simple Touch not recognized by my Vista computer

[ Edited ]

When I plug in my nook to my vista computer it is not recognized and asks to install the device, when I try to do so it fails.... How can I get the Simple Touch to show up as a drive on my laptop?

Plug in your NST to the computer. Wait. The Nook will turn on. Go to My Computer.
Close the windows that say install device. You don't need drivers. This is Windows program that automatically shows up with any device. Ignore it.
The Nook will be drive E or F after it is on.
If your Nook is asleep when you plug it into the computer, the drive will show up as NOOK.
It is confusing.

I should add, after you sideload books, right click the drive and eject your Nook. Then you can unplug it.
