Nook user guide

I am not very techie, so I wanted to down load the user guide to my computer so I could print it off. Each time I try to download it, I get the message "Bad Encrypt Dictoniary" Any one else have these problems?

I want to download some pictures to my screensaver but can't figure it out. Need the page to read as I do.

Re: Nook user guide

Are you downloading the user guide from the support web page?

The user guide is already on the nook.  If you are downloading to a computer, it should be ok as I did that when I ordered the nook; printed it this morning & placed in a binder (will need to get at least a 1" in binder for easier page turning).

 

I just used the nook area & folled the track to where the user guide & quick start were; both are just pdf files; I think adobe reader popped up to load/read the files & I used the adobe reader to save a copy.  My browser is firefox.....

Re: Nook user guide

gingerVN:  not sure if you got your user manual but adding pics to your screen saver / wall paper is pretty easy.

 

Screensavers:

 

Connect your nook to your computer via USB.

 

Copy a FOLDER (important) of pictures to your "my screensavers" folder on your nook.  For example, if you want a bunch of pictures of your kids as screen savers, create a folder called "kids", fill that folder with pictures of your kids, copy the kids folder to your nook (/nook/my screensavers/kids/(your images).  After you disconnect the nook from your computer you will see a new entry under screensavers called "kids" (the name will be whatever you named the folder).  Select it and you're done.

 

Wallpapers go in the "my wallpapers" folder and MUST NOT be enclosed in a subfolder.  /nook/my wallpapers/(your image files).

 

Screensavers should be Width: 600 x Height: 800.

 

Wallpapers should be Widht: 600 x Hieght: 760 (to account for the status bar).

I saw your post and am having trouble.  How do you setup the "my screensavers" folder on the Nook?  I have the picture file set up on the computer but when I download it to the Nook it appears to have downloaded but I cannot find it on the Nook.  Does the file on the computer have to be named  (/nook/my screensavers/kids/(your images?

 

Thanks for any help.

CARVER405:

 

1.  Create a new folder on your computer.  Give it a descriptive name such as "Beach"

 

2.  Copy some pictures to the "Beach" folder.

 

3.  Connect your nook to your computer via USB.

 

4.  Navigate to the nook on your computer.  You should see several folders in it.

 

- My Wallpapers

- My Screensavers

- My Documents

etc.

 

5.  Copy the "Beach" folder from your computer INTO the "My Screensavers" folder on your nook.

 

6.  Eject your nook.  Go into settings.  Select Screensaver.  You should now see a new option for screensavers called "Beach" or whatever you named your folder containing pictures.  Select it and you are done.
