When i used the USB cable to connect to my iMac (running Snow Leopard w/Intel processor), it did not appear to get recognized (or I couldn't find it in a Finder window). Saw the message on the nook to .....eject or unmount..... but could find where to do this as it was not shown as a drive. Needless to say I couldn't add any files to it. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

My Macbook Pro, also running Snow Leopard was able to connect via USB with the nook. Do your other USB devices connect without problem? Have you tried restarting? Is it possible for you to mount the disk using Disk Utility?
just a few suggestions. I hope it turns out to be an easy fix.

That's odd. I have a Mac running Leopard (not SL, just plain Leopard), and when I plugged the Nook in it mounted fine and showed up in the sidebar of my Finder windows. A few of things to try:
1- switch to the Finder; then select FINDER -> PREFERENCES; in the general tab under SHOW THESE ITEMS select HARD DISKS (the Nook is a USB mass storage device and thus is considered a hard disk). Once you connect the Nook it should show up on your desktop.
2- If that doesn't work, connect the Nook and then in the Finder select GO -> GO TO FOLDER; in the text box type /Volumes. That should bring up a Finder window with all your mounted volumes. The Nook should be there.
3- if *that* doesn't work, connect the Nook and then launch Terminal (it's in Applications/Utilities). This is going to give you a UNIX terminal. At the prompt, type cd /Volumes. Then type ls -la. That should give you a list of all the mounted volumes, and the Nook should be there. If it is and none of those other options had worked, it might be worth a reboot of the machine.
If none of those work, you might try a different USB port and/or USB cable.

Kyle, thanks so much for your quick advice! Re-booted the Mac and plugged the usb cable directly into back of Mac in lieu of the powered hub, and there was the nook drive. Thanks again.

when i plug my nook into my mac, it says, "If you want to use your nook and continue charging, please choose eject or unmount from the menu for the nook drive on your computer." the nook isn't showing up on my computer, though, and i've tried all three of those things! any advice?
